Only Love Can Break Your Heart
I recently had a post about people you love and it reminded me the difference in loving someone and being in love with someone. Neil Young sang “Only Love Can Break Your Heart” and that is the real definition. If your heart was broken; you were in love.
This brought to mind a woman I suppose I was once in love with. I guess you fall in love and have to climb back out and my heart was broken.
She had soft dark red hair, which I thought was a unique color to her and her alone, but after our break-up I’d see people with her hair color and style everywhere. I thought she sitting in front of me in a theater one night; it was someone else. She was the woman in the elevator, the woman sitting in front of me on a plane. Everywhere I went there seemed to be someone that looked like her.
I finally got over it and her one night when I was invited to dinner at the home of two friends. After dinner their Irish Setter came into the room. The Setter had the same color hair as she had. I thought to myself, “So this is what it’s come to? I’m seeing her in a dog.”
