As Grace falls in love again she hesitates, feeling a mixture of excitement and fear. She doesn’t want to make the same mistake as she did in her first relationship. She wants to ensure that she chooses a partner that is more suited to her values and interests. Grace has learnt life lessons since her first relationship and now those lessons are put to the test. It sounds mechanical compared to the first time she fell in love which had her head spinning and her emotions running out of control. The time was right for her to decide to step over or step away.

Poem – Stepping Over into Love
Audio – Stepping Over into Love
I’ve met a man patient and kind
Loving and thoughtful
Independent and strong.
I’m cautious to accept his love and trust
I’ve been vulnerable in love more than once
This time I want to make sure
Love will be true and mature.
So far his actions have proven to me
His trustworthiness and honesty
He reached out to me unselfishly
Showing his love and acceptance of me.
I have to surrender or I’ll never know
How our love might blossom and grow.
I’ve thought about this long and deep
Now I’m ready to explore love with him
A deep calm has filled my heart and mind
With my decision to love, we step over the line.
