Stories of Love

I am now in France.  To be more precise, the South of France in a small community just outside of Montpellier.  Why?  Because I am in love..because I want to spend time with my darling Jean-Luc.
A little history for you!  My mother was born in France.  She came from the North of France in a city called Metz.  My father, who was in the Canadian Air Force, was posted in Metz.  He was young, dedicated to his work and committed to return once his term was complete.  But, life and love has a way of changing things.  It did for him!  Boy, did it.  He fell in love with my lovely mother, who was a single mother of two children (trust me–that was more rare back then).  My dad threw caution to the wind.  So did she!  They married and stayed in France for six years.  Forced to assimilate, he learned a second language and a new way of being.  For all the photos and stories I heard–la vie c’etait magique!  Years later, she with her young children (my sisters Michele,  Christiane and Janine), moved to Canada.  All is the pursuit of love.
Now back to me…  I never expected, after a separation from my husband, that I would allow myself to feel love ‘really’.  I felt shut down and spent.  I was ashamed for my errors, angry for the things that had happened and yes bitter.  I  regrettably hurt many and allowed myself to be hurt too.   But slowly, I let go and allowed myself to heal.  I am mostly agreeable with him and wish him much happiness.  At that point, there was a slight opening.  The door to my heart was barely visible.  My mind urged me to not get close to anyone.  But….
My own life force had different plans.  And… after meeting Jean-Luc..my life has been a journey of much joy.  Of course, it goes without saying, being in France is grand.  Assimilating into a culture that is a huge part of my DNA, my culture, my memories is so very meaningful.  BUT….
Mostly, what I am learning is to detach, let go and let be.  Yes, sometimes very frustrating… because I have to let go of old thought patterns… BUT So liberating and freeing.  It is a lovely life.. I plan to fully appreciate it.
Do you have stories of love, of letting go, moving on, forgiveness?   … so liberating to just trust what comes our way.
I do not know what my future hold.  For today… the story is love!

Histoire D’un Amour

in english:

Story Of A Love

My story is the story of a love
My lament is the wail of two hearts
A romance like so many others
That could have been yours
People from here or somewhere else

It’s the flame that inflames without burning
It’s the dream that’s dreamt without sleeping
Like a tree that stands
Full of strength and tenderness
Into the day that comes

(Chorus)
It’s the story of a love, eternal and common
That brings everyday good and bad things
With the times we embrace or with the times we say goodbye
With the nights of anguish and the wonderful mornings

My story is the story we know
Those who love live the same one, I know
And tragic or very deep
Is the only song of the world
That will never end

It’s the story of a love, eternal and common
That brings everyday good and bad things
With the times we embrace or with the times we say goodbye
With the nights of anguish and the wonderful mornings

My story is the story we know
Those who love live the same one, I know
And naïve or very deep
Is the only song of the world
That will never end
It’s the story of a love

en francais:

Mon histoire c’est l’histoire d’un amour
Ma complainte c’est la plainte de deux cœurs
Un roman comme tant d’autres
Qui pourrait être le vôtre
Gens d’ici ou bien d’ailleurs

C’est la flamme qui enflamme sans brûler
C’est le rêve que l’on rêve sans dormir
Comme un arbre qui se dresse
Plein de force et de tendresse
Vers le jour qui va venir

{Refrain:}
C’est l’histoire d’un amour, éternel et banal
Qui apporte chaque jour tout le bien tout le mal
Avec l’heure où l’on s’enlace, celle où l’on se dit adieu
Avec les soirées d’angoisse et les matins merveilleux

Mon histoire c’est l’histoire qu’on connaît
Ceux qui s’aiment jouent la même, je le sais
Et tragique ou bien profonde
C’est la seule chanson du monde
Qui ne finira jamais.

C’est l’histoire d’un amour
Qui apporte chaque jour tout le bien tout le mal
Avec l’heure où l’on s’enlace, celle où l’on se dit adieu
Avec des soirées d’angoisse et les matins merveilleux

Mon histoire c’est l’histoire qu’on connaît
Ceux qui s’aiment jouent la même, je le sais
Mais naïve ou bien profonde
C’est la seule chanson du monde
Qui ne finira jamais
C’est l’histoire d’un amour
