Love Never Dies...

Sunday, April 18th there was a full moon.

Some people think that people go a bit nuts whenever there is a full moon.  They may be right, because some people do act strange around that time of the lunar calendar.  But, the reality is, no one really knows why.  Is it coincidence?  Possibly.

One thing is for sure.  Whenever there is a full moon, I recall the movie Moonstruck.  After all, the moon draws the woman to the man!

Monday night, although it wasn't truly a full moon, if a person didn't know better, they might have thought it was, because the fullness of the moon was similar to the night previous.  Of course, this depended upon whether or not a person could see the moon, due to the amount of cloud cover that seemed to act like a curtain, covering the glow, making it more of a glimmer.

At least, that's how it was through the evening.

As you are probably aware, I have trouble sleeping.  Well, about 1:00 am, technically Tuesday morning, while I laid awake, the moon made an appearance that I found shocking.

One minute it was nowhere in sight.  The next, cloud cover had rolled away and the moon shone as brightly as it had the night before, when the full moon proudly displayed itself.

Lying there, I once again thought of Moonstruck.  And, how the moon draws the woman to the man.  lol  :-))  To me it seemed rather humerous, considering there is no man in my life.

I reflected upon the thought of love.

Staring out my window, I considered in my mind why God allowed me to see this vision of brightness.  After about 20 minutes or so, the cloud cover returned once more, dimming the light emitted.  Eventually, there was only a shadow of light.  Then, there was complete darkness once again.

As I said, I thought about love.

It amazed me how even though the brightly lit moon still existed, it was covered up by clouds so that it was unable to be seen by human eyes.  Sort of like how love actually is, in my mind.

After all, love never dies.

Whether we are talking of love for parents, spouses, first loves, friends, family, pets, who or whatever, it truly makes no difference.  Even though we cannot always see the love, it is always there.

Memories of the past can bring to mind circumstances where love's joy can be felt, once again.  Thinking of a loved one proves the point, that even though the person may not be together with you at the time, there is a connection.

Because love never dies.

Until next time...
