Love After Love.

My daily visitor.  - I don't know his/her name, but I get a daily visit.

 He/her is after food, I am glad to see a friend.

The time will come when, with elation, you will greet yourself arriving at your own door, in your own mirror, and each will smile at the others welcome,and say, sit here. Eat. You will love again the stranger who was yourself. Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart to itself, to the stranger who has loved you all your life, whom you ignored for another, who knows you by heart. Take down the letters from the bookshelf,the photographs, the desperate notes, peel your own image from the mirror. Sit. Feast on your life. These are words by Derek Walcott, and sometimes require several readings to understand.

"time is the best healer for heartache" love should be as much as we can do! arriving of more people in our lives is the major factor for the occation of love. people leave us, but more join us also.we should not be disappointed. and move on...
