Brevity

“Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.” 
― Jalaluddin Mevlana Rumi  

Like shortness of breath

You breathe in as much as you can

The moments might be fleeting

Like stardust sprinkled over a dream

You absorb it completely

Taking it with you into the night

Hoping to have this fullness in heart when dawn arrives

  1. Those moments are the ones we hold so very tight to our hearts and which make us flow from one of those precious moments to the next. Then separation only happens on the surface only. Wonderful quote and poem, Sylvester!
