Love, Yesterday and Today

“Your perspective on life
comes from the cage
you were held captive in.”
– Shannon L. Alder

It was the time of untold secrets;
it is the time of brave revelations.

It was the time of agony;
it is the time of bliss.

It was the time of pain and parting;
it is the time of acceptance and reconciliation.

It was the time of grief and sorrow;
it is the time of understanding and joy.

It was the time to grant forgiveness;
it is time to give second chances.

It was the time to wait;
it is the time to let go.

It was the time of hopelessness;
it is the time of hopefulness.

It was the time to be optimistic;
it is the time to be realistic.

It was the time for fantasy;
it is the time for reality.

It was the time to be self-less;
it is the time to be self-engrossed.

It was the time to trust;
it is the time to keep trusting.

It was the time to drift away;
it is the time to settle in place.

It was the time to hold back;
it is the time to give it all.

It was the time to break a heart;
it is the time to mend a broken heart.

It was the time to say, “Goodbye!”;
it is the time to say, “Thank you!”

It was the time to look back with tears;
it is the time to look forward with smiles.

It was the time to end a love story;
it is the time to begin a new love story.

It was the time to love;
it is the time to love even more.

Time moves on,
and so are we.
