  1. William Preston on said:

    THE FINAL FILLIP

    Everything they could have said
    to each other had been said;
    all that was left to do was kiss,
    and so they did, leaving nothing amiss.

  3. EVERYTHING THEY COULD HAVE SAID TO EACH OTHER HAD BEEN SAID…

    their grievances, their criticisms, their hurts and their anger had been spoken: eloquently, emphatically, and loudly. They came to this confrontation well prepared. Lists made. Points to score. Each the one wronged. They said it all, summed it up and restressed the important arguments. But they both left dissatisfied. A bad taste in their mouths that needed something soothing, like milk after cayenne, like sweet after savory.

    It dawned on them at the same time. They had torn each other apart. Felt that brief moment of sweet revenge. Shredded a relationship past repair. They realized they still loved the other… but it was too late… everything they could have said to each other had been said.

    Two Words

    Everything they could have said to each other
    Had been said… for that moment
    The only thing left to say at this point was
    “I do”
    And they did

  5. Walt, your picture sparks negative inspirations. Something, my friend, that I am not used to especially in my relationships with loved ones. And I thank God that scenes like the one depicted are very, very rare. But, I know they are a part of so many lives, in particular, relationships that do not include a relationship with God.

    Move On

    Everything they could have said
    to each other had been said

    It was time to take a break
    Clear their heads and pray

    Time to cry if necessary
    Time to filter through the emotions
    And time to pray some more

    Who started it
    Who said the worst things
    Who cut to the quick
    Is no longer important
    Now is the time to mend
    Time to forgive
    Time to forget
    If possible

    Talk it out
    Pray together
    And move on

  6. Everything they could have said to each other had been said. They loved, they hated, they cried, they laughed. There was no magic wand to make things
    right. Young people, they were so certain that no one else waited in their future. Parting was frightening. They have not lived enough time yet, to realize its healing properties.
