There's a difference between letting go and moving
I know that "letting go" seems to logically be followed by "moving on." I am not sure that is exactly true. I think that a heart never lets go of true, deep, perfect love. Even if a person is forced - chooses - to move on, that doesn't mean they have actually let go. No, they move their love to a different part of their heart: a sacred, cherished and protected space where it will always remain. A place that they can return to with fond, sometimes bittersweet, memories of a very special time... a very special person.
The Third Order
Maggie had taken off her necklace and placed it in her pocket. She slowly took it out… The two weddings bands hung together, linked by a paper clip. She silently kissed the two rings, tears running down her face, and placed the necklace into the niche. She hoped that neither Callum nor Brother Ventimiglio noticed. She mouthed, “I will always love you, Ben,” and blew a kiss. “Together for eternity.”
