The world will not applaud us, that I understand, but two days ago before you left for America, emigrating with your ever-promoted husband, we snatched a last moment together: your hair on my shoulders, eyes locked with mine; finding comfort in a moment we were powerless to expand and all that was and is left for us.
You are the wife of my employer; a man defined by his successful search for glory and power while we both sought for what we could not afford and dreamt of travelling landscapes we would never see. In each other’s eyes we sought the immortal power of understanding, albeit uncertainly. Beauty is not always apparent to the man seeking the neat solution but to me you were the heart of it’s being: an unacknowledged angel trapped in expediency.
So often we pass the most important moments of our lives thinking them incidental but your gaze and the love within it showed me an understanding and kindness which gave added value to my being.Nothing moves humanity at large more than the powerless loving the powerless and in your gaze I discovered that truth to be eternal.
