because I met…

my
true
love
when
I
was
fourteen
I
never
grew
old
I
never
lost
the
youthful
excitement
and
joy
I
had
for
life
because
my
hand
was
always
tightly
held
in
his
and
I
only
had
to
turn
my
head
to
look
into
the
face
of
love

but
then
his
hand
slipped
from
mine
into
Death’s
and
my
mirror
shattered
the
spell
was
broken
and
I
watched
helplessly
as
my
youth
bleed
out
in
front
of
me
leaving
behind
only
shards
of
glass
and
dust

    I had to take a moment to think about what I read. So many thoughts, many of them at war with each other… It’s painfully beautiful, if I may try to share one of them. I hope it does not offend you.

  9. No, no, I’m just happy that you got it. Thanks for explaining…I actually thought that was you meant, that it was painfully beautiful, but I was just happy that you thought it was beautiful because he was so beautiful and what we had was so beautiful so thank you for your kind words. I appreciate them very much.

    Very touching and sad.

  12. this just stopped me in my tracks, my heart missed a few beats,
    it aches for you now Sis..i’m sending you love and warm hugs.

  13. I feel them. Thank you. XXOO I think we knew each other in a different life.

  14. I’m so very, very sorry for your loss. You’ve expressed it beautifully, and wrapped in that beauty is a blade which should pierce every heart. Not to wound, but to allow the flow of compassion.

    It works on another level, as well, I worked with a fellow who, after our first firefight in which we took casualties, lost his faith. Your poem reminded me of his loss and desolation.

  16. Thank you. Appreciate that.

  17. My heart aches for you dear Gigi to have and keep a love so true and deep from such a young age has to make the loss that much more tragic and devastating. Your heart is still there, though battered and bruised, I know it cause I feel it in every encounter we have. I carry you with me always. With more love than you can imagine~Melanie

  18. You really are the sweetest person. Thank you so much for that. I love you too and appreciate the things you said, so very, very much. You are very special and I know that. You should know that too, because it’s the truth. Thank you again. XXOO
