This I Believe

I still believe in love

3 months into being divorced

2 and half years of separation

1 second into the new

I have learned about strength

I have learned about kindness

I have learned about loneliness

And that each moment whether of effervescent beauty or pure misery will slip into memory

I thought that life was about maintaining

In the face of change

Now I recognize change in its surprising currents and know that the deepest truth of who we are is polished by each and every experience

I believe in love

In the curl of a back

A tender unexpected kiss

The look across

The things I will learn

The sweet sharing of who we are

And what we can become

I believe we are here to love

This I believe
