Love

"Journeys end in lovers' meetings", goes the saying...but journeys also start with lovers' partings! I watched two lovers (I don't think they were married)  parting today, dealing with their joy in each other (no, I was not eavesdropping, they were in plain sight until the bus came to the bus stop!) , and their pain at parting...human emotion is so incredibly complex...I've not seen anything as sweet as the smiles they gave each other. Each smile was a kiss, and the moisture in the woman's eyes at the end, hurriedly wiped away, spoke poetry to me. Love, in joy, in pain, is a magical thing.
