Life Goes On...

Funny how much strength these three words gave me tonight..."Life Goes On". It's true that whatever happens to the litle piece of universe we manage, life happens. The earth turns in its axis, night becomes day, and everyone goes about their business oblivious to the fact that the woman walking in the train station with head bent so as not to let strangers see her cry is in a state of daze and unbelief.

Heartache, my friend, you are with me again. Long time have I not felt your presence... I can't say I miss you for I have prayed that you and I will never see each other again. But alas, we are here, my companion... I have felt your familiar touch once again.. and I can't ignore you for you are someone I know from long ago...

You stare at me, quite apologetically... you also wouldn't want to be be with me.. but as destiny wills it, so we are here... occupying the same space and time again.. but as I try to look at you again... you try to tell me something, you mouth the words, but I can't understand it... but another friend is with me now... Time is here... making his presence felt..

And he says.. Life goes on.... just breathe and count... 1,2, and... 3.. and say a little prayer... as the minutes turn into hours... and eventually into one existence..

amen...
