Without you…For You…With You

The Perfect Love,

that beyond the happiest moments,

passing through the life’s storms,

the small and harsher failures,

all through every regrets and mistakes,

the obstinacies and defenses,

the barriers, and misunderstandings,

the disillusions, the fears and the tears,

through all the unspoken words 

and unexpressed thoughts,

the retained kisses and buried caresses… 

is the love that not only has overcome intact

all the adversities and hindrances,

but that kept growing

and became still greater in all them…

 

“I’m still holding the empty space where your hand held mine”


Dedicated to Margaret Mary Healy.  March 11, 2017

…For maybe our life together hasn’t been perfect,

but our love was and is…
