I won’t blame you if you fall and I won’t ask you to believe that life won’t hurt at all. But when the tears stream down your face and you’ve given all your light away, I’d like to be the safest place, your hideaway.

But the fact is, we are not only a physical body, we have souls too, and sometimes our souls get sick.
