The Truest Sentence

The Truest Sentence

hands bw

Brief observation for the day:

I kiss my husband goodbye as he leaves for work, and I think,

“Bye, person whose hand I want to hold when I die!”

That’s it, isn’t it? That’s how you know. Even if you’ve been in love with too many, or wish you were in love with more … If you are abjectly lucky enough, there is one person in the world where, even if you died, it would be all right, as long as he were there. As long as he held your hand.  (… Or was waiting for you?)

There’s that One True Thing. The one true sentence that Hemingway said we should write about:  The person you should spend your life with is the one you know you will call out to the day you die.

I wish that one person upon everyone.
