When we met, our connection was immediate, unmistakable.
Everyone around us noticed, too. The music of our hearts played
for each other, and for all to hear. We found in each other,
a part of ourselves that we had been searching for. Learning
each other was discovering ourselves. We seemed to already know
what we would find before it happened. But forever was not
to be for us. And, somehow, we knew it.
Sometimes, love is better that way. A bright flame for a time,
then, like embers, glowing forever in the memories and hearts
of those it touched, and leaving two people changed for the better.
She will remember me. I know this just as I know the reverse.
Ours is not a fairy tale ending. It’s much more real.
My guess is that you know this love, too.
Two people, a chance meeting, and a lifetime of memories.
