Some Thoughts on Relationships
I think we have to allow ourselves to be emotionally vulnerable. How else can we really be genuine? To do so is taking a chance, but how can a relationship, whether friendship or love, really grow if we are not willing to let our guard down and open up?
Letting someone in is a big deal, yes, but more often than not it helps us to grow, assuage our insecurities, and build a stronger relationship. Sometimes we get hurt; sometimes we are ridiculed. But sometimes it opens the door to something wonderful.
Winter Surrenders to Spring
If we were having coffee my love, I would sit next to you and tell you how much I have missed you. I have many questions, but seeing you now, they just don’t matter.
All I want to do is hold you and kiss your mouth, your cheek, your hands…your wrists….I want to run my fingers through your hair ever so gently and just take in the moment of seeing your beautiful face after such a long time.
My heart is pounding as a love suppressed for far too long awakens from a seemingly endless winter upon seeing the beautiful spring of my one true love again. I have so much to say; so much to tell you. But I find myself in a whirlwind of emotions…The only words that emerge from the storm—the only words that matter are—“I love you so very much.”
The words to the song at the link above fit well with this piece of writing.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you how much I love the theme song from Franco Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet. The beauty of the melody and the story it represents brings back many joyful memories of my own love story.
Whenever I hear it, I stop whatever I am doing and just let the melody wash through me. The song reminds me of the power and passion of young love, but not just any love—that one true love that endures through eternity. Feelings of boundless love and compassion well up inside me and I feel like I’m going to burst. Then sometimes tears come as I think of the anguish the two lovers felt in having suddenly lost a piece of themselves that cannot be replaced—a feeling I know only too well.
The theme can be found here.

The Weekend Coffee Share is a WordPress community activity in which I may choose to participate from time to time. As indicated in the activity title, entries will appear on the weekend. In accord with my first contribution, the topics will diverge from this blog’s usual subject matter and likely be of a more personal nature.
