What Once Was

(image source: unk)
"there are ruins in each of us. a place where
'what once was' lives on like an echo..haunting
the landscape of our lives with its weathered
foundations. abandoned..scavenged..and dismantled
by time..the ruin is the holiest place in our heart.
it is the ways in which we have been broken that
have earned us a place to stand. it is in our life's
absences that a wild longing is born. this ruined
place is a temple in which to worship..to throw
down our grief and our forgetting..and praise
what remains. after all..these remains are the
evidence of how greatly we have loved and 
they should be venerated as the legacy of
survival that they are."
