Basking

You owe me nothing, but if you wish to compensate me, then I would ask of your time. As I said in the beginning, to spend time basking in your lambency is a greater gift than I deserve. Does is make you shiver to hear those words, as it does me to speak them? Let me know that you are moved, or release me to spend the rest of my days cloistered in retreat. I beg of thee, confirm this quickening while there is still breath in me.
