Taylor Swift posted a heartfelt message on her Tumblr Sunday (May 10) after seeing a post from a fan named Kaileen.

Kaileen wrote Swift a message, sharing that her mother had passed away this past January, and she was having an especially hard time with it being Mother's Day. "My mom was my best friend, the one I laughed with, the one I cried with, and the one I loved with my whole heart. For a while, I felt empty. But as you've done many times before, you filled that hole. You took me out of my sad place and made me happy," she wrote, in part. "...Today's going to be another hard day, but I know with you on my side I can get through anything."

Well, how can you not respond to that? 

"Kaileen- I love you so much and can't imagine what you must be feeling today," Swift wrote late Sunday. "You've lived through my worst fear. I'm so sorry you can't spend today with her. It's not fair, and there's no reason why you should feel okay about it. No one should ever expect you to feel normal today. I admire and respect your ability to put forth such a sunny, sweet disposition when you've been through something so dark and tragic so recently. I never would've guessed by your attitude or your posts. I never would've known if you hadn't told me. Sending you a huge hug today. Gonna go get iced coffee and cheers to you. :)"
