‘I wish we could love in moderation’,
Said her best friend.
She was reminded of her sister’s words
From a few months ago.
‘If only you could hate that one less
And love this one with boundaries,
You would be happy.’
It wasn’t in her to dilute her emotions.
The love, the hate, the compassion, the fear
Everything ate at her
Made her a little less her.
But she was content for having had someone to love & cherish that much.
She did not live life by halves
It had always been ‘all or nothing’ for her
This time, though, God had other plans.
She was given ALL, temporarily.
The memories she tried to make were there to stay, their short creation span
The only regret…
