“No, I don’t regret a single moment…No I don’t, looking back…When I think of all those disappointments…I just laugh, I just laugh!”
I’ve loved this song since the day I first heard it, so many years ago. But I can say without a doubt that tonight, with the rain rushing against my window, I feel like I am hearing it for the first time. It’s taken me 7 years long years since I last truly shared all of my heart with another man. A lot of false starts, expectations, all my own…all the lessons learned, pushing me ever closer to the destiny that is Robert Franklin.….THANK YOU GOD for every single experience, every tear, every bad poem I penned, all those unsent letters and bitter screams I silenced with my pillows.
It was and remains worth it to find myself completely at your mercy, content that you knew best and that as long as I trusted you, the outcome was as it should be. No, I didn’t think I would meet a man who would upend my entire Universe as Robert has. I was in blind acceptance that it was OK no matter what, not that he was out there and I just had to keep looking. No. It was OK despite my fear and loneliness. So, for God to have brought us (back) together, fated, as we were meant to be? Yes, I knew, God, that YOU were waiting for me and then, without fail,you stepped aside and revealed, my Robert. Waiting for me.
“We were drawn together in destiny, I know this love we share was meant to be…”
