However, despite the fact that I have in my files two pieces of paper that have aborted my 20-plus year marriage against my wishes, desire and pleadings, I plainly cannot "move on". Why? Because the simple, stark reality is that those papers cannot ever and will not ever be able to abort the Love within my Heart that resides there for the woman I married. So, here I stand...and here I will stay...til death we do part.
It is a Truth that you can always find something in art - or with artists - that has a close resemblance with your current life. And as art - at least the musical arts, anyway - affects the passions, you have to be careful not to let them (your passions) overtake you. That being said, if I were ruled by passions alone as regards this stupidity I find myself embroiled in, I can picture myself standing in front of her on some moonlit evening, pouring my heart out through the words of the song that follows. Simple...direct...plaintive...pleading...with the emphasis on the words and their meaning as the lone cello lends its somber melody.
Of course, I cannot do this as she now bears another's name, but still...enjoy the artists, the music, the words... and remember your vows - and your Love - for the spouse who may be setting beside you, and fall into my dream for a few moments...
And No...I will never give up on her, as Our Lord has never given up on me. That is why Reason must always control the Passions.
