(Lyrics) “We may shine, We may shatter, We may be picking up the pieces here on after, We are fragile, We are human, And We are shaped by the light We let through us, We break fast, cause We are Glass“
You’ve been through a mountain of experiences together. Your love has been tested in ways that only the two of you can understand. If you tried to explain it to someone else, their eyes would glaze over with the shock of shaded black. In fact, most people think you’ve both been through too much to continue and try again. They’ll never get it, because you’re just now grasping the true concept of unconditional love yourself.
But neither of you care what others think. You know there are no guarantees with the road you’ve decided to take, but you also know that the two of you have something other couples may never fully experience, ‘growth’. That growth brought you together, tore you apart and now, it’s bringing you back together once again.
You both have your eyes wide open with a knowingness that love can never be fully experienced unless you’re willing to let the chance of heartbreak peak it’s difficult and sometimes ugly head through. Getting passed it, means going through it first, and you’ve already accomplished that very difficult task.
(Lyrics) “We might be oil and water, this could be a big mistake, We might burn like gasoline and fire, It’s a chance we’ll have to take
I’ll let you look inside me, through the stains and through the cracks, And in the darkness of this moment, You see the good and bad, But try not to judge me, ’cause we’ve walked down different paths, But it brought us here together, so I won’t take that back”
With a renewed tenderness you begin again, however, this beginning is way passed the starting gate. You’re well along the way to everlasting love. You’re ready to take on a new risk; you now accept that love may not always be returned, you also accept that you may have moments where giving love isn’t your first choice, however, over-powering these obstacles is one sure thing, ‘yourself‘.
You’ve gained a new strength that doesn’t require a pedestal, 24 hour support, or constant adulation – you’re OK with you; and because of that incredible milestone, you’re OK knowing that with love, there’s always going to be a risk, and the law of balance dictates reward as well.
You’ve been mentally working out …. and the strength you’ve gained can never be lost. You carry the knowledge of life tucked safely in your heart. You’re ready to share that heart again; you’ll do everything and expect nothing – because the expanded version of you is enough to carry you through the peaks and valleys of love.
(Lyrics) “Trying to live and love,
With a heart that can’t be broken,
Is like trying to see the light with eyes that can’t be opened.
Yeah, we both carry baggage,
We picked up on our way, so if you love me do it gently,
And I will do the same”
We are fragile, we are human,
And we are shaped by the light we let through us
Congratulations, you both have elevated souls this time around.
