“I could draw back
or I could run forward.
But you want me to embrace
the now.

My eyes are keener –
perhaps –
than they should be.
They think they know what’s coming.

And the thought of being separated
from what I’ve come to expect
shakes something inside of me.
I’m aching in my chest.

Why another hole in me?
Will this pattern continue
Love. Lose. Love again.

Do these holes give
dimension to my life?
Or simply steal my life away?
Questions. Empty questions.

My one consolation?
My Constant Companion.
Eternal wholeness is coming.
No more separation.”

“Loss isn’t something we get over, it is something we get through. It doesn’t get easier, it gets harder because we love more deeply than before. It’s worth it.”
-Sandi Bradford


“Only love gives fullness. Love is of spiritual origin, since God is love. It is not something that comes from deep emotion, nor is it something of our will – a mechanism of the soul. Love is a Person.”
-Ana Mendez Ferrel
