The Blue Cafe...


"My world is miles of endless roads
that leaves a trail of broken dreams...",

sings Chris Rea in his hauntingly beautiful 'Blue Cafe'.

I was listening to this song today. I fixed myself a drink. I couldn't help but think of my own trail of broken dreams. I thought of all the people that I have loved that were no longer with me. Some were taken away by death, some by distance, some by sheer stupidity on my behalf... A tear welled up in my eye...

There were those who stayed with me for just a few months; others stayed for decades. Still, all of them had held my hand and walked with me along paths that were beautiful. Paths that left me with so many happy memories. I realized how truly blessed I was. Each and every one of them had come into my life; each of them had left behind a lesson for me to learn. The lesson of truth. The lesson of kindness. The lesson of forgiveness. The lesson of sacrifice. The lesson of patience and endurance. Most importantly the one left to me by my fairy godmother: the lesson of unconditional love. The only kind of love that exists...

Chris Rea 's song was winding down now, the glass was sitting empty in my hand...

The tears in my eyes had dried. A warm smile was creeping on my face, a twinkle in my eye. I was surrounded by memories once more. Only this time they didn't come from the past. They came from the future...

Beautiful -
You speak of walking along "Paths" - dont' you know that with each "path" you leave a footprint of your presence?

Yes, you learned, (many don't) - but can you imgine the joy and learning you "gifted" to others.....

The future is infinite.....

~Thank you, Tiller.

Yes, there are many footprints in these paths. Some remain, others were swept away by the winds of time.

I have learned, but there are still so many lessons to be learned; all I can hope is to share my knowledge with anyone who 's willing to listen and try to learn something from them too...

Alas, the future is not infinite.

I am reading this and wondering if you realize that you can knock on a woman's heart and have her opening the door before she knows it.

I believe that's true what you said about unconditional love. Anything less is meerly attachment or possession.

Every love that comes into our lives should be remembered with a smile, taking with you only the sweet memories and lessons learned.
