Great love moves you, it moves all of you…
It hits you like a Spring morning.
The brisk air, warm sun, sound of life all around you, the realization of a fresh start.
Great love feels like the home you never knew you missed.
Before it you were a wanderer, now suddenly you found a reason to stay still.
But when the ground becomes shaky, when those four walls start the crumble,
You don’t shatter, you disappear.
No matter how many nights you fall asleep telling yourself it’ll be okay, deep down you know it won’t.
You feel it in your dreams, in your waking breath.
But that’s okay too.
His absence isn’t a void that needs to be filled.
He is irreplaceable, and that’s what great love does, it changes you.
While others are telling you to move on, to let it go, you can’t.
A piece of you will always hold him, will always love him and will always want to.
That doesn’t mean you’re stuck, it means you’re human.
And being human isn’t about closing our hearts to heal, it’s keeping them open to let life in.
All of it. The pain and the ecstasy.
Everyone who has experienced great love also risked losing it.
Except the truth is you never lose it, you cherish it.
Every look. Every touch. Every tear.
You’ll never be the same and you’re eternally grateful for it. For him.
With each passing day, each exhale of heartache, you’re still living.
Great love moved you, it moved you forward.
DEDICATED TO ALL THE INDIVIDUALS OUT THERE LOOKING TO MAKE SENSE OF THE PAST. CARRY YOUR GREAT LOVE WITH YOU AND REALIZE HOW MUCH STRONGER YOU ARE BECAUSE OF IT.
