Today is the day that I’ve been looking forward to, seemingly forever. The day that I can finally step outside to forge a new path back home.
It’s been a very long time since you and I met up here. And while you look exactly same, I have aged 100 years.
You should know that I’ve only just begun to realize how much smarter the heart can be, how much more captivating the soul. I’ve still got so much to learn about love and beauty and grace.
And the incorruptible power of laughter.
Our years together flashed by faster than lightening in a bottle. But today begins anew a countdown measured solely by a broken timepiece. One silenced so many years ago like the cold and distant memory of some long forgotten winter.
All this, some might say, just so that we can better understand the urgency of our quiet, ignoble passing.
I, too, believe it to be so.
