I loved her so much. Words (no matter what language is used) can’t describe my love. I’d simply say that she was the one that I was dreaming of since I was a kid.
We had to break up; she is an American and I’m a Syrian!
We are different on many levels: Language, culture, religion, social norms, habits, wealth,…
Unless it’s supported by similarities of those, love lasts few months only!
Updates: This is not my story. It is the story of Syrians living abroad (USA, Canada, Europe, …). I’ve heard it and read about it many times!

Beautiful and very powerful sharing.
Thank you….. and I’d like to share something.
Although your story may have been true at the time,
for I presume this was not recently…..
Times have/are changed.
I am now a firm believer that:
No longer can we base our lives, from our past.
What was true today, may not be true tomorrow.
What was not true yesterday, may become true today.
No longer will history repeat itself!
Everything is changing.
Everything HAS changed.
Wonderful, Ren. Thank you for your kind poem. Yes, time has changed and what we thought that we can’t live without, it turns out that we really lived without! Though, they are beautiful moments.
Thank you, Terry. Glad you like it
Lovely. I know you have memories still very sad.
Thank you, Sue. Yes, we have sad memories. With time, we forget the bad ones but we still feel the beautiful feelings of the good ones.
Ah yes, love is not enough, there are many other factors as well.
Thank you, Jay. Love is very beautiful, but yes, it’s never been enough (alone) to build a family…
Oh, my friend, what heartfelt words. Sending hugs your way. 🤗 🤗
What can I do without your hugs, Linda?! Thank you very much for your kind words, my friend.
