It’s such a privilege to have had a whole day of blissful ignorance.
It was a full twenty-four hours… of waking late to the rhythm of ocean waves; witnessing the marriage of our closest, dearest friends; dancing all afternoon on the beach until the moon rose and illuminated an indigo sky; of lying in the sand feeling almost transcendent, observing as many stars as there were grains beneath us; of being so wholly and completely in love with the one I was meant to spend the rest of my life with, knowing this was where I was supposed to be.
Even though we wouldn’t be granted a chance at forever , I didn’t want to know that then.
Those losses will never be reclaimed, but memories can be healed until they don’t hurt anymore.
That one day, can be perfect again.
