The reason it hurts so much to be separated is because our souls are connected. Maybe they always have been and will be. Maybe we’ve lived a thousand lives before this one and each one of them we’ve been forced apart for the same reasons. That means that this goodbye is both a goodbye for the past ten thousand years and a prelude to what will come. When I look at you I see your beauty and grace and know they have grown stronger with every life you have lived. And I know I have spent every life before this one searching for you. Not someone like you, but you, for your soul and mine must always come together. And then, for a reason neither of us understands, we’ve been forced to say good-bye. I would love to tell you that everything will work out for us, and I promise I will do all I can to make sure it does. But if we never meet again and this is truly goodbye. I know we will see each other again in another life. We will find each other again and maybe the stars will have changed, and we will not only love each other in that time, but for all the times we’ve had before.
