Dearest Love of My Heart,
Thank you for teaching me about love. Thank you for this heart that loves, no matter what the consequence, no matter how great the cost. Pain is the price we pay for love, and that’s the deal we make, says C.S. Lewis. Only we never know it until it’s time to pay the price. Thank you for reminding me when grief bites deep that love is always worth it. And when their physical absence echos in this place that love carved so deeply into my heart; and when it feels so vast and empty without them, thank you for showing me that this place is filled by love. Thank you for telling me, whenever I need to remember, that as long as love remains, those we love are never lost and never gone.
