This is how it goes- this separation thing.
For some, it was seen from the beginning-
a dreaded future thing.
Unspoken or announced,
The end will always bring
Exactly what was expected- life-altering change.
For others, it is sudden-
Surprising or unknown.
And up until this point,
The love for one another had not been shown
At its full capacity- but it was revealed
Through painful tears and choking sighs
As the void between became so real.
But it’s too late now.
Why love, when it’s separation we fear?
Why love, if impending heartache is near?
Why love, if the end result
Will be an endless “I Miss You” and tears?
Love is a risk- a lofty one, too.
But on this side of heaven,
It will always be true
That we cannot control it all-
So why live with caution?
“Live to the hilt” without any precautions
And love today as if tomorrow you’ll fall;
For risk-taking love triumphs
Though separation may call.
