We commented that we couldn’t believe 21 years had passed… It seemed only a minute. When we look at each other we don’t see clearly. It’s through the patina of shared experiences and layers of years rounding out the edges. There was an undeniable spark when we met that now is a bed of warm comforting embers. We really only need each other…. And I still want the time to last longer each visit….. my heart beats differently when we are together.
