An ending

The end came with a whisper.

A quiet acknowledgement on the eve of my 39th birthday that we were no longer capable of moving forward together.

The breath catches in my throat when I think of the beauty gained from knowing this man; the place he carved in my life.

I am grateful for having shared a piece of this journey with him.

I am in awe of what his love taught me.

And so on my birthday, I choose to celebrate the many blessings of my life;

to thank God for all of those he has chosen to walk this road with me, even those who aren’t here to stay.

"They say that if one understands himself, he understands all people. But I say to you, when one loves people, he learns something about himself." ~Kahlil Gibran art by Kimberly Kirk
