Le Coeur de Scorpion II 04-22 (Apr 23, 2008)

(posted to Facebook, April 23, 2008)

Loneliness takes time to reconcile, emptiness takes time
to fill, or perhaps we just forget. Before we can remember
reunions with joy, we must move past the hollowness
farewells can bring.

We must come to a point where the memory of being near
each other no longer brings us tears of sorrow. Sorrow in
wishing we did not have to part, in wishing we could be
closer for a longer moment in life. Forever?

It seems to be a passive process, this moving on, for it
is not accomplished by things we do. It simply comes with
the passage of time, when the hurt of being alone again
beings to fade.

It is only then that we are able to remember the moments
with joy instead of sadness. Only when the pain of being
torn apart begins to heal can we being to see the happiness
we shared.

The memory of our reunion will no longer bring tears of
wanting to go back in time, although we may still wish for
that. Instead, we reminisce with peace, our hearts becoming
happy with the memory.

We will look forward to our next meeting, we anticipate
being together once more. We will not fear the loneliness
that will inevitably follow, for the pain of emptiness will heal.
Sorrow will fade and complete joy will overtake it.
