PART 1 – The Knot
As I wander through the woods I am filled with sorrow
for the love that could not be.
Yet even as I grieve, I find a glimmer of hope
for I know that, like the knots that bind us,
love can be both strong & fragile;
a force that shapes and changes us.
It’s a promise made, a vow that we keep;
a bond that can weather the storm and the deep.
Let the knot bind us, let it hold us tight
through all life’s challenges, through the darkest of nights;
for the knot is a symbol, of love that endures,
of a bond that is strong and a love that is pure.
So, I hold on to the memory of her
as I find the strength to move on.
Embracing the love that has been,
and the love that will be.
