Something More

Life isn’t always easy.


There are updrafts and downdrafts

For which we are totally unprepared.

Most who marry

Do so

Expecting it to last a lifetime.

As far too many people learn,

That is not always the case.

When you are left

Hurting and alone,

It may feel like you will remain there


But sometimes,

Friendship is waiting.

Sometimes, that friendship

Becomes something more.


It becomes love.

The heart that thought

It would never soar again

Takes wing.

I witnessed this love

Come to a dear friend.

I was over-the-moon happy

For her and her new love.

When she asked me to participate

In their wedding…

Well, that was an honour beyond words.

Today’s that day.

It will be beautiful.

I am so very thankful

That sometimes,

A broken heart

Can once again


Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails (1 Corinthians 13:4-8, NIV).
