Everyday the same routine. Arise. Look to the sea.
Would today be the day?
Memories of her laughter.
Her bright eyes.
Little love notes they would ‘hide’, which were so easily found.
That had been their only purpose.
Every day a gift.
The ease of their conversation. Her confidence had given him confidence.
Too late he discovered his loss.
He awoke one morning. She had gone.
Taken by The Chariot of betrayal, hurt & Time.
Revealing he was not the one for her.
Finding little comfort in the whispers of tender passersby,
“A love like that, if it could only be bottled.”
Vainly, he waits.
“But even though she was attractive, there was something else about her that caught his eye. She was intelligent, he could sense that right away, and confident, too, as if she were able to move through life on her own terms. To him, these were the things that really mattered. Without them, beauty was nothing.”

“Never stay where you are simply tolerated. Never stay where you’ve cause to question your worth. Only Live where you thrive. Only Live where you are celebrated.”
