The gift of submission.
The ultimate gift?
It is precious to be sure-
-and must be held in reverent, caring, loving hands
The gift of trust.
To completely trust another
Offers one sublime security
The gift of love.
To feel the fullness in one’s heart.
The intoxicating, engulfing exhilaration that is loving and being loved.
Such a gift!
The gift of friendship.
Countless episodes of belly hurting laughter-
-and the sharing of sad salty tears
Like the mighty oak, it grows over years
These gifts – and others – are to be cherished.
But there is another gift.
I believe it to be the most splendid of them all.
Allowing another to be themselves –
– utterly and completely.
The gift that says…
Without fear …
You may be exactly who you are
all the time – with me
When you offer someone this ultimate freedom
You offer them the safest place in the whole world.
