If Tom had learned anything... it was that you can't ascribe great cosmic significance to a simple earthly event. Coincidence, that's all anything ever is, nothing more than coincidence... Tom had finally learned, there are no miracles. There's no such thing as fate, nothing is meant to be. He knew, he was sure of it now.
Sometimes you think to yourself about the way you loved the wrong person. Both your mind and heart cannot accept the fact even though you loved unconditionally, you gained nothing back. That's enough to tell that your love was true and pure. Expecting nothing in return but just love is what true love is all about.
