When You Listen To The Echoes Of Our Hearts

Sometimes we close our eyes and just listen to the echoes of our hearts.
We fall in love and there are times when we love so much,
losing ourselves in our own emotions,
we wonder why there are love that grows and love that grows cold.
We would start to search for the answers
and try to find where we started for we cannot question
love when it has its own reasons.
Love will always be as it has always been;
silent, mysterious and deeply profound.

Many of us believe that love is forever, that love never fails.
Only to be disillusioned in the end
when we find our hands empty and our hearts longing.
We mistakenly have looked at love as a need to be fulfilled,
but love is only a gift to us. We should not hold it in
our hands for we may never find the strength to let it go
when it decides to leave, we should only embrace
its warmth and glow while it last,
then freely open when it’s time to say goodbye.

There is always a reason why we have to move on.
When we have to say goodbye to the
feelings we wanted to stay forever.
Let us not wave our hands with heavy hearts,
for love will set its own wings freely and find the place where it belongs.
We may have lost it, but then again we close our eyes
and listen to the echoes of our hearts,
we will know that it have never left us.
For the good that we have become because love will always stay.
It will always be there reminding us
that we should be thankful and happy,
not because we have lost it but because for once in our lives,
that feeling lived in our hearts and made us happy. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
