One Year to Love

Written by Author G. D. Grace

December 2011

“Who’s there?”

“Don’t be afraid, I am not here to hurt you.  I was sent from light years away, to spend one year with you and show you the love that The Almighty has in store for you,” the voice said.

“Where are you?  Why can’t I see you?” I asked nervously.

“I am right here,” he said, as he drifted from the darkness into the light of my bedroom.

“…but you’re half my age,” I said, confused by his admission.

“Why don’t people understand that, when it comes to love, age is just another ploy by fear to interject and remove possibilities?” He said.

“Perhaps it’s because the age difference eventually does become a problem…  but, forget about all that, what did you mean when you said you were sent from light years away to show me…” He completed my sentence.

“Love… Yes that is what I said.  The strength you displayed last year when you walked away from that relationship was amazing, yet you still manage to doubt yourself and question your strength,” He whispered, as he moved closer into my personal space.

I could feel the warmth coming from his body as he stood close enough to move in for a neck-kiss.  No sooner did I complete that thought did his lips move across the base of my neck in the back.

“Don’t be afraid,” He said.

“This isn’t right,” I told him, moving forward and away from his tender, moist lips.

“What are you frightened of?”

“Nothing,” I said, annoyed by his correct assumption.

“You walked away from that relationship last year because you knew you deserved better.  You knew that he could never completely give himself to you because he was still lodged inside of another soul’s heart,” he told me.

“Okay, that did it.  How do you speak of things about my life with such certainty as if you were there witnessing what took place?” I said, spinning around to face him from a distance.

He smiled.

“Because, I am love…” was all he said.

I was dumfounded.

His beauty exceeded his exterior…

What shone from within his interior intrigued my spiritual base.  It was as if he was revealing to me some ancient secret sought by many, but only found by some.  I knew that I would allow him to show me whatever it was he was sent to show me, because my hunger for love seemed to be overshadowing my senses.

“You are love?” I asked, rhetorically.

to be continued….

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…
