I’m grateful to have loved another so deeply
that I never hit ground in the freefall.
Maybe a few wanton branches along the way,
but nothing I couldn’t handle.
That kind of love is rare…
And even though I’m back on earth now,
I can still feel the love cushioning my feet.
Like some kind of magic cloud slippers
that keep me from falling
all the way down.
If you ever love someone like that,
it’s easy to set them free.
Just be willing to trust you are safe.
To know that no matter what,
you will be caught and held
in the arms of Love,
if not in your beloved’s.
So that you really can freefall…
