The love he left behind lives in certain places of this city. Parts of his love swim in the oceans and rivers, and parts of it soar high in the skies. It breathes the wind I breathe and in turn fills my heart with the intoxication again and again…
Why is it that some people who come into our lives impact our mind heart and souls in such a way, that even we knew not possible? They come, spread their magic through our minds and hearts and then they leave. They don’t realize the power they have within them to brighten someone’s heart with such light; especially those hearts that had once been in search for even a small candle of hope and faith.
When I reflect upon my experience of having the honor of being blessed with such an experience, I can’t help but smile and thank the heavens above for such magic. Of course, I have my moments when I start to think through my basic mindset and wonder why he left, and why we couldn't spend more time together?
Yet as time has passed, I feel happier and blissful that he left at the time he did; if it hadn't been for his absence in my life, I wouldn't have cherished the presence of his love in my mind heart and soul. When I look deep within me, I will find many moments that are incomplete without him, yet if I take a step back and observe myself from the outside, I see a complete person.
I see my eyes looking back at me with grace and purity and drunk in love. I see my smile strained by pain from the past, yet I see beauty that only his absence could bring in my life…absence which filled the winds with our fairy-tale.
