This book is a collection of poems about love and letting go. Whether it be a newfound love, an enduring love that lasts a lifetime, or a love that will soon be saying goodbye, one can find in these pages something like a mirror that reflects an image of one’s own heart.
“I see now that no person who has ever loved has ever been spared from tears. Tears of joy and tears of sorrow. Of the most intimate union and of letting go.”
“I guess you will always be
my heart’s deepest wound.
The kind that aches terribly.
The kind that time could never heal.
I glimpse a memory of you
and I feel it!
I feel both the joy and the pain
of loving you.”
“In this dark and lonely world…
I found you.
I found someone
Who will take away all my masks
And see me for who I really am…
See me without judging me
Or accusing me…
See me without backing away
Being either frightened or ashamed…
See me for who I really am
And love me just the same.”
We will finally come to see
We both just wanted to be loved
You and I.”
