Hey Receiver, someone has your back. Whether your troubles are romantic, professional, personal or simply the result of long-term stresses and strains, this Bearer simply wants them to know they’re not alone; whatever happens, there’s another person on their side. And a recommissioned, possibly sharpened, gardening tool. A gesture of friendship rather than passion, And my axe!
invites trust and companionship from the Receiver.
Responding may be as simple as Thank you
or You rock!
, or the wry acknowledgement of Make it stop
. I trust you
communicates trust in the Bearer, while lovers may reply with I love you
, Only you
, I need you
or We can get through this
Cynical Receivers may employ Don't make promises you can't keep
, I don't trust you
or even Big mistake
to question the reality of the Bearer’s assertion.
