You are young. Now is your time to set the world alight. A time will come when you will hesitate. You do not have those boundaries now. Fall in passionate love just enough to get your heart deeply broken and cry in his arms when you leave. Make that affair a whirlwind in which moments, days and nights blur into a warmth that threatens an upwelling of emotion that never abates. Make it the stuff romance novelists only dream of writing. As you part, look at him one more time and remember those eyes; you will catch a glimpse of those familiar eyes many years later at a café or market square. The moment will set your soul on fire when you need that warmth most. Endure. The broken heart will help the long flight home. Hold it close. Smile of it, shed a tear, and when the grandkids playing in the yard rush to your arms and ask why you are crying hold them close and tell them it is because you love them so much. All of it will be true.
