And she had enough of me, even the charming platitudes that would so often caress her vanity. Carefully I would pick each praise like delicate roses careful to avoid the piercing Truth of those hidden thorns. Those roses that once colored and gave life to a tryst of pleasurable adventure, now lay abandoned on the ground.
It was sweet as honey for the time it lasted and now we’re both sticky with the bitterness of departure.
I walk contemplatively in a new direction, a direction far from the memory that I must now surrender to the long strokes of time. Each step she passes away, each day the pain fades, and during all this time I can’t help but give thanks and praise. Having met her, having felt something together, and although now it’s all gone and we’re through—still we will never be the same.
Now and forevermore we will be made better for the love that touched us both—unconditional love—the kind of love that says it’s okay to let each other go, the kind of love that doesn’t have expectations, and the kind of love that spans lifetimes. We will forget one another for awhile, yes this is true, but what’s more true is even though it is time that helps us to forget the love we once had, it is also time that will surely bring us back together—this lifetime or the next.
With Love and Gratitude.
Christ in you.
