I was both lucky and unfortunate to see her come and go.

To and fro, and I knew then like I know now that she could come as she pleased but could not stay forever,

My better half.

She brought more than expected and left with more than before…My heart…though she didn’t know it…was already gone…leaving with her to places unknown.

I had given some thought to things.

How they were and will be.

Only to realize how much I’d rush to try and make things happen quickly.

Wanting to know the future more than I knew myself and all that I was capable of.

“Embrace this space! This time! It’s not a race!” Said a distant voice, subtle yet powerful, long lost yet familiar.

It was the person I’d always hoped to become.

The best version of me.
