I would say that I see you and I want to connect with you …
except I understand why it is better that we don’t.
I would say that I love you — more than words could ever express.
And that I miss you … so much.
Perhaps more accurately I miss what I believed we could have. Time is a teacher; I now accept I was unrealistic.
I am at long last embracing Truth;
it was there all along but I resisted its answers for me.
I would say that I accept you but I know you don’t believe that
… So, I will simply write those syllables here.
I would say that I have been able to move on now.
That your choices are yours to make … I respect that right.
Perhaps more accurately I accept that we all made choices along the way … Time is a teacher. Yes?
I am at long last embracing facts; details I knew all along
but chose to bear blame, hoping it would be enough.
I would say that I know now that the distance
between us is not to be assigned in blame nor regret.
I would say that everything in life occurs for a reason.
And I miss you …
If one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again.
