Our Loved Ones

Do we ever really let go of our Loved Ones?
Do we need to? I ask myself.
As my memories crowd in and I enjoy again.
Being in the time and place with those I loved.
The places and things they remind me of.
The joy is still there.
No. I hope never to let them go,
I tell myself to keep them close.
Once I read a passage in a book by Francois Mauriac.
It went like this;

We are all moulded and remoulded by those who love us.
And though that love may pass, we remain,

None the less, their work…….
No love no friendship can ever cross the path of our destiny
without leaving some mark upon it forever.

We love because He first loved us. (1 John 4:19)
