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….
