We met innocently. We liked immediately. We tip toed cautiously. We danced carefully. We opened up immensely. We proceeded gently. Swallowed whole. We loved wistfully. Persevering patiently. Faced to the future. Ignoring the world outside of us. Until today. Today we closed the door. Because I could not let go of my present in order to begin our future. Fearful of crossing the bridge. You stayed, you tried, you kept faith in us. I failed you, I failed us. Only hours apart, the pang of sadness. We lay alone, hurting. I’m sorry I could not be strong enough to make this real. Forever grateful. Forever transformed.
