A Love Like Ours
A love like ours has no words that can define.
A love like ours has spanned a thousand lifetimes.
A love like ours, when we have picked our way though countless other relationships and have found each other again, deserves a few brief moments for sad reflection.
Each time we have touched, the heights to which our emotional attachment has reached, bridges the chasm that has kept us apart, making that void vanish and there is only you and I, looking into each others eyes with a knowing that tears asunder that temporary veil of forgetfulness. We have always instantly known that we are one and the same. That we have always been we two.
A love like ours deserves to be honored with these moments of sadness for our many separations.
Separations that we have always arranged as a reminder to us both, that there is no love like ours.
A love like ours is more powerful than distance, than time, or other binding circumstances.
A love like ours never dies, never diminishes, but remains strong and is of epic proportions.
A love like ours has a give and take that is balanced for the good and growth of us both.
When I am in need, you are there to give it. Freely.
When you are in need, I am there to give it. Freely.
These two hearts know when the need is shifting and we are always up for the task.
There is an instinct within us that is always on course in this regard.
We may not see each other but we always feel each other.
A love like ours makes it possible for our attention to expand to include others, to include the world. Because,
A love like ours knows no limits.
A love like ours is great because it exists,
Our two hearts have created this love like ours.
We desired it, we molded it, we thought it, we felt it.
We've written about it, we've discussed it, we've shared it.
Although apart for the moment, it takes but a thought to bring us instantly back "home" to each other.
So when I am sad for a brief moment in time such as this, I am honoring with these broken pieces of my heart, in great humility and thankfulness,
A love like ours.
