The Dance Of Life

Are you familiar with Joe D’ Mango? He is a DJ here in the Philippines who gives advise on love and relationship. And I must say he did well in that, everything he said could run deep in your heart that somehow all the words he said are true. He is so expert on giving advices, and way back when I was deeply wounded by a man whom I thought was my shining armor only to find out in the end he was not. Those times when the hurt was too much to handle, I kept listening to his piece of advice in a tape my sister Irenie bought me and every time I questioned myself why was it happening to me, his words give me courage that somehow and somewhere I will find a man who would love me till end.

And when I found Terry, I know he is the angel God sent me, a partner for lifetime in the dance of life. With him I know I will never get lost again.

Below was his words in the tape I listened how many years ago.

There were two hearts who met in a dance. That moment was magical, there was a sweet song playing, there was harmony. And soon love in the air. They fell in love and they started building castles in their dreams. And promised forever with all certainty. But somewhere in the midst of the fun, they got lost in the dance. Something went wrong, but they can never do anything. They were just drifting away, their fortress falling apart. There were so many questions but no one had an answer. Then the music stopped, then there was silence.

When we truly love someone we give our best and let that person see the pureness of our intentions. But sometimes that person makes us cry and hurts us for the wrong reasons. That some must have loved us but he has not loved us enough to make him stand for what he truly felt. Now, we are faced with the seemingly impossible task of forgetting. We have burdened ourselves long enough. But we still can’t get out from this emotional trap.

Let us remember that the more we try to forget someone we love the more painful letting go will become. Sometimes we never have to take that person out in our hearts at all, for he will always be there no matter how hard we try to drive him away. It isn’t his presence that made this difficult but it is our stubbornness to accept our destiny that aligns forgetting is next to impossible. We keep a cold face but deep in our hearts there still that lingering hope for a reconciliation. Somehow, we still believe that we can rekindle small embers and relight the fire that once burned in our hearts.

This thought gives us hope but it also breeds the seeds of loneliness and despair. The only way to forget is to accept and the only way to move on is to look ahead and let the footprints of the past be blown by the wind of time. Only then can our hearts find a partner in the dance of life and hopefully will never get lost again.

So if someone left you broken hearted, just always remember that somewhere along your journey, there is someone who would hold your hand and will dance with you forever.
