My Love Is Like The Softest Sweetest Rose

I spent a couple of hours reading messages I sent to Goldfinch throughout 2018 last night. When I read them…my goodness…I seem as if I am seventeen, and full of topsy-turvy romantic notions and sentiments.

I feel as if I have aged a lot since then. Perhaps that is partly due to the Pandemic…and also making peace and building a life with Jack. But the feelings, the feelings do not fade. They are just a little more grown up now.

My feelings for Goldfinch are as soft and as sweet as ever.
