You know that I loved you, once upon a time.
Back when your heart blended with mine.
But things changed right before our eyes.
Which once again shifted the course of our lives.

There was good reason for this to occur.
But at the time, I wasn't so sure.
I wandered restless, all alone.
Until one day my heart found its way home.

Once yesterday's memories faded into gray.
And the cobwebs in my mind were swept away.
My eyes were opened once again.
And I realized this was not the end.

Every step along the way is just a stepping stone.
Another chaper in our book to call our very own.
When each lesson learned is said and done,
It molds us into what we eventually become.

The things we feel can be said in so many different ways, and you have expressed it so well! I look forward to searching for more of your enlightening words.

Ruth and Corrine, thank you both so very much.  I guess that's all we can do is live just one step at a time.  Hang in there Ruth, we are all stepping with you.

This is beautiful, Eloise. Wisdom gained through pain will be well heeded, I think. Well done!

Lovely Eloise.  Every ending is only the start of a new beginning.   In between we figure out how to let go.   James
