Dedicated to Michelle
Submitted by Michael
Our story begins with the dream and hope of someday visiting the Islands of Hawaii. Michelle and I were two lost souls on this planet we call earth. Our roads would seem to never cross and never intersect until that beuatiful summer night.
It was unusually warm and the air was full of life and sounds. My heart was empty and alone. My walk slow and methodical. There was a feeling of eternity in my steps. I was walking into a sea of nothingness. You see, I had lost the best woman in the world. This may not seem like a big deal until you have walked in my same shoes. Michelle was and is the only woman I will ever love. She walked out of my life because of my fear to commit. I felt I had lost her forever. So there I was walking as usual along the ocean feeling sorry for myself. Until that wonderful night.
You see, I had moved 3 times since I had last seen Michelle and thought there would be no way she could ever find me (hopeful thinking-like she would ever want to find me). On the beach in front of my was she, as beautiful as ever and smiling from ear to ear. All the small talk aside, she asked me if I would like to go to Hawaii with her and her folks to catch up… What do you think I said? She will remain forever to this day the only woman I will ever love. Thanks for giving me the strength to realize my weaknesses before it was too late. Love you!
