So Near, Yet so Far…

It’s been a different way to spend my December I thought as I sip my coffee this morning gazing out on a crisp, clear moonstruck morning on the Prairies. I watch in awe as a beautiful fox preens himself, oblivious to the cold wind and extreme temperatures which I’m having difficulty adapting to. He looked at me through my living room window and it struck me he knew exactly what I was thinking. A moment of clarity and understanding passed between us.

The tinkle of my cell phone woke me up with a text notification and as I read it many thoughts came to mind. I wondered if you knew just how much you are missed and how sad it’s been for me to go through disconnect. Your laughter and conversation were the highlight of my day for many months now and it’s easy to let melancholia wrap me in her blanket of wistfulness.

You can only let the ones you love move on when their heart changes direction. It doesn’t mean you can stop loving them today, tomorrow or even next year.I would call my mood bittersweet this morning, it hurts and yet it reminds me of such sweetness of you. So this is why I think we have come so near and yet we are so far.

“Geographically closer, heart-fully further apart”…Es-tee

    It is hard letting the ones we love go. Sometimes it’s the only way and there is nothing wrong in expressing your feelings. I admire your guts to tell it like it is and anyone who can’t handle it, it’s definitely their problem NOT yours.Keep the love light on, your that kind of woman
