“I think only when you are truly alone can you see you never were.”
Kelly Moran, Summer's Road

“The truth is I do love you. Admitting that means opening myself up to all that pain when you leave. After you realize this wasn’t love, but gratitude.”
Kelly Moran, The Drake House

“I only know two things in life for certain: I know I love her and I know when her memory of our time together fades, I’ll still feel exactly the same as I do today. Time is irrelevant, as I once said to her. And I’m happy wasting every second of it on her.”
Kelly Moran, Return to Me
