A gentler, softer self emerged.
One that she recognized, yet had almost forgotten.
Where did this come from amidst the sorrow…
pressing on their hearts? A heaviness to their spirits?
Each day love found them, yet they were faced with pain.
How could something so innocent feel so raw and threatening?
They spoke with love in their eyes…they listened without judgment.
An understanding of trust also emerged, as their lives took on a whole new direction.
Where this would lead could only be journeyed, together. Stronger. United. Committed.
And they saw again through shared sorrow of what had brought them together once again.
Love. Love for each other. Love for one’s self.
