Life is too short for a love that lasts so long

Rhododendron-3

This is a very good thing.
Health and someone to share it with
Lack of health and someone to share it with
Life is too short for a love that lasts so long
Love, and my dear loved one, show the eternal truths
This is a very good thing.
Health or no health
Happiness or no happiness
Life and no life
These are each our being in a moment of eternal truth
This too is a very good thing
Health is, until it is taken for granted,
But never again
The foibles of our lives are learned in these moments of no health
Love, and my dear loved one, show the eternal truths
This is a very good thing.
The blessing is not only the health, it is the love and connections with the loved ones
Life is too short for a love that lasts so long
This is a good thing in its way, in its connection, on this day.

 

This moment is a place we’ve never been before.
