Artist's Description

The human sat alone, head hanging down.
Tears fell silently.
They felt so empty, even the pain was a welcome embrace, so when a hand touched upon their shoulder they did not have the strength to look up.

“Go away!”
said the human, not even knowing what they wanted.
“I want to be left alone….I ….”
Yet all the while thinking
“Please don’t go away, I don’t want to be alone”
but when they glanced up, there was no one there, just a shift in the light and the hint of warmth on the air.

The Angel spoke from nowhere, and everywhere.

You thought your love would last forever…
But it did not.
You thought that fire in your heart would never fade,
But it slowly died.
You thought that the fire in the other’s eyes would never grow dim, yet it suddenly burned out…and was gone.
How cheated you feel – What a waste!

You grieve, you hurt – oh! how you hurt for all you feel you have lost.
It seems the warmth, the light, the love has gone…
That nothing is left….

But remember this…

True love knows three flames –
It is a sacred trinity.

When two flames unite, they create a third flame that burns more brightly than both that created it.
This mysterious alchemy is of another dimension.
It cannot be seen with human eyes, it cannot be touched with human hands, but sometimes, if you are quiet and still and truly believe, it can be felt with the human heart.
Once lit, this flame burns forever.
It cannot be measured or contained in human terms.
Yet long after those two souls have burned themselves out, when time and reason and humanity have worn down the passion of their union, or regardless, their journey calls them onto different paths,
The fire of their creation remains,
A light that shines eternally
In a dark and longing world.

Love may be over
In your eyes
But in the eyes of the universe,
What your love created
What your heart set free,
Will live on,
A celebration of what once was and will always be.

True love creates three flames –
And one will burn forever.

(This image was created to inject some warmth and hope back into the lives of two dear friends who are hurting right now….their own flames have died down, leaving them cold, shattered and grieving. To all who hurt this way, I know only too well how cold it can be….. may the energy of this image bring back a little of what you need to believe again… xoxox)
