Bittersweet

Do you remember when
That someone,

Truly

Special…

Artistry
Imbued in
Flesh…

Grace,
Here,
Now

Impacted your life?

Not casually,

Not incidentally…

But deeply.

Do you remember
That moment
When that singularly
Special
Person,
Somehow
Crossed your path,

You,
So thankful
For that serendipity?

I think that you do…
And you just don’t
Want to admit it
To your heart.

Your mind says

Just forget about it…

Ah, yes, the practical side
Of things.

Uncomplicated,
Straightforward,
Stress free…

So directs your mind.

But your heart
Sees things differently,
Doesn’t it?

Your heart
Is willing to risk,
Risk it all

To love.

Your heart
Accepts the complications,
Maybe even relishes,
The messiness
Of love,

Just to experience
That compelling
Warmth and desire.

And so where
Does that leave you?

Sometimes happy,
Moving through
Life,

But still longing,
Unable to forget.

You do remember
That person,
Don’t you?

Those memories
So full,
So significant,

And now so…

Bittersweet.
