Tenderness

To look deeply
into another’s
eyes
and not look
away

To reach beyond
the skin
to the heart

To listen
with the
compassion
of God

To see
beauty
and grace
midst the
ugly and
uncomfortable

To hold
the broken
with soft
hands

To love
when
hate
fills the room

To be
Jesus
when
Judas
knocks
on our door
