Bonds

“But I do know this: I am grateful for
the time we shared, and the bond between us.”

What were the odds of us, I wonder? Were we ever meant to be? Or were we nothing more than two souls passing by on our own paths, crossing for a short period of time? I often ask myself what could have been different if our lives took different turns. Would we have still found each other? Would our fates have been more than a fleeting moment, but a lifetime?

I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to answer those questions, but I do know that I am grateful for the time we shared — the connection that still binds us through our memories and our souls.

  1. Love the way you weave your words.

    The thoughts of how things could have been different if you had taken different turns. Three different times I was scheduled to go on vacation to the small town where I met my wife. All three times the trips were cancelled.

    This write brought out so many memories and deep thought. Excellent write.
