"Whatever you do, you will be sorry for the rest of your life if you say no."
- Gabriel Garcia Marquez (Love in the Time of Cholera, 1985)
To whom I haven't met yet,
Divorce & separation seems to be the words of the day lately in my working place. I was right in my previous letter to you when I said love can lift a human to dizzying height or drag them into the depths of despair.
It makes me wondering when things begin to change between divorcing couple? Maybe the laugh that comes out of each other mouth sounds hollow, maybe they feel the floor giving way beneath them or maybe, just maybe, the air being sucked out from their body.
Love is like a grip of madness. At first, when you are apart from your lover, all you can do is think about your next meeting. As you drive to work, the love songs on the radio take on a new meaning as if they were written specially for you. But when you are on the brink of separation or divorce, you are convinced that all the love songs is nothing but a fake hymn.
Dear hummingbird, what if I were to tell you that you need not suffer the pain of breakup? What if I were to tell you that a little faith in the Power above would ensure a life free of the anguish people usually feel after being dumped? Would you take it?
I do not know about you but I would choose sunshine the color of life every time. Saying that, I believe that if you have faith in Him, everything will be fine. In fact, it will be more than fine. Every day when I wake up, I thanked God for delaying any sadness in my life. Friends think I have too much time on my hands, but they may not understand that I am on a hot pursuit of happiness.
This is a little thing called love.
Live in my heart & pay no rent, forever.
