A Beautiful Pain

I must share a beautiful poem that is written by my dear friend and colleague, Rick Stephen.
I have never actually heard anyone who could describe that aching pain you feel in your heart and body when you are apart from the one you love - until now. Rick Stephen describe this pain just perfect in his poem. As Rick so beautiful said; It is a beautiful pain, one you would rather have than not! 

A Beautiful Pain
Rick Stephen

To Romeo did Juliet eloquenly opine
of a sorrow I’d never claimed as mine
how good night brings such sorrow,
a void unfilled “till it be morrow”

Though I’d read so many times
the master poet’s poignant rhymes
and watched enacted this very scene
I’d not grasped what it truly means. . . .
