Everything is temporary. Nothing at all lasts forever. People die, they end romantic relationships..., things are always changing, and nothing can stop this constant change from doing what it will.

Some relationships hold together for decades, even lifetimes. But they all end, if not prior to death then at death.

When you embrace that fact unflinchingly, without turning away, you can liberate your heart from the fear of loss -- which may keep you from opening to the fullness of the sharing of love in the only time you have: now.

since feeling is first
e.e. cummings

since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you ....
