I have some beautiful writings to share with you all, with a little bit of my own thoughts at the end. Like or comment on this blog if you like them as much as I do (which is quite a lot).
first: love and destiny
“Do you know, what it’s like to love someone so much that you can’t see yourself without picturing him? Or what it’s like to touch someone and feel like you’ve come home? What we have wasn’t about sex, or about being with someone just to show off what you’ve got, the way it was for other people our age. We were, well, meant to be together. Some people spend their whole lives looking for that one person. I was lucky enough to find him so quickly.” (edited slightly) The Pact, Jodi Piccoult
Second: love, devotion, and death
This is a poem that was written by Dorothy Collins, a resident from where I work. She wrote this after her husband passed away. It brings me to tears almost every time I read it.
“”I’m Not Waiting”
I’m not waiting to thank an empty chair
Each day, I thank you while you are still sitting there
I’m not waiting, until God calls you from above
Each day, I show and tell you of my love
I’m not waiting, until the sun goes down
Today, I say “I’m sorry” for the hurt that
Caused you to frown
Our Book of Life will close—some day
Of course the tears will fall
Because I’ll miss you terribly—you won’t answer
When I call
But there will be tears of gladness too—
And these will set me free
For I will know, I DID NOT WAIT
To say, each day, how much you mean to me.”
The truth in these words melt my heart. The vulnerability makes me feel liberated and want to be able to express myself like this. The passion pumps my heart and warms my body, and these writings will stay with me forever. And dare I say it, Happy Valentine’s Day.
