took a long look at the life behind me…

for a long time all I could think about was the pain….

the tear stained memories….

but now…

when I think of those times…

all I can think about…

is how thankful I am to be here…

those dark times…

they made me appreciate the good…

made me see how priceless kindness is…

they deepened my heart and grew the humanity in me….

I’ll never take love or life for granted because of those times….

Those times…

As dark as they were….

They are a gift…

And they showed me how powerful love is….

How nothing could ever compare….

Those times….

They changed me….

I faced death enough times….

Until it didn’t scare me anymore…

Until I learned….

The only thing that ever mattered was love…
