I KNEW.

UNFORGETTABLE. WHOEVER--WHENEVER—HOWEVER--THERE'S A PERMANENT PLACE--DEEP IN MY HEART—FOR SOMEONE. REGARDLESS OF THE YEARS...THAT "SOMEONE" OCCUPIES A SPACE THAT NO ONE ELSE CAN FILL SO....

I LOVE EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE WITHIN MY REACH, KNOWING THAT LOVE IS FICKLE, FLEETING, AND FAST- MOVING; IT’S HERE TODAY, GONE TOMORROW.  IN MY QUIET ALONENESS... I WRAP MYSELF IN THE BEAUTIFUL LOVE THAT STILL REMAINS LOCKED INSIDE ME...THE LOVE THAT HAS NEVER LEFT ME.

MORE AND MORE OFTEN… WARM TEARS MOVE IN SLOW-MOTION DOWN MY FACE BUT...AT THE SAME TIME...I SMILE, REMEMBERING. THROUGH ALL THE TEARS, THE MANY YEARS-- AND WITH SO MUCH PASSING TIME--I'VE NEVER FORGOTTEN...

IT WAS ALWAYS YOU.
