Love Is Written in Chapters

Love is written in chapters

Each one beginning with “I met someone,”

With “forever” doodled hopefully in the margins.

Some chapters fill only a few pages

Compared to others still left unfinished

And while no two are exactly alike,

They represent for us growth, change, awareness

Teaching us what heals us and what harms us

As our bruised hearts take risk upon risk

Quietly hopeful for the chapter that will stay.
