Anyone who has ever missed someone knows the feeling, like a part of themselves are gone.
It’s nothing concrete, like an arm or a leg, or even just a pinky toe. It’s a deep hole somewhere inside, like a part of us that is usually filled is empty and painful for it.
And this quote, by Mary Tall Mountain gives a certain sort of comfort.
“We never leave each other. When does your mouth say goodbye to your heart?”
Because it’s also true.
For those we love, those who have become a part of us, no matter how far away, we are still connected in the bonds of love, trust, passion…
And that is a beautiful thing.
