No Me Quitte Pas

No Me Quitte Pas

“Life without a friend is death without a witness.” ~ [Arabic Proverb]

As yet another year passes I still feel the emptiness that once was endowed. A simple word, a shallow sleep, a vague déjà vu and the memories play out on its never ending reel. A momentary flashback and the ache is just as strong as it once was. When the preoccupations of this world fade and our subconscious becomes audible, we are reminded of our lost ones. We’ve all lost someone we held close to our heart and on that common ground we can connect on the feelings it evokes.

“Life is weaker than death, and death is weaker than love.” ~ [Khalil Gibran]

The only survivor of death and loss is love. It will last till the end is the beginning of eternity and beyond. To this I hold onto as I reminisce about the people who I’ve lost. This loss will exist only for the duration of my life and I hope for reconnection. A continuation after an insignificant pause, where mortality ceases and immortality breathes. The last embrace in our memory will finally be embraced with infinite when the yearning evaporates with the warmth of everlasting euphoria…

“Life is a perpetual drunkenness; the pleasure passes, but the headache remains.” ~ [taken from 'Moon Over Morocco']

All that I hold dear will be my burden to carry in which I graciously accept its terms and conditions for now and the rest of my mortal years. Burdensome in its test of patience and nothing more…

“Let us endeavor to live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry.” ~ [Mark Twain]

Once you were here with me and once again we will be together. Your memories have remained for me to endure the wait.

“Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.” ~ [Irish Proverb]
