Lost Time

One theme I can't bear in stories and movies is the theme of lost time. The other night the dh showed me the video below and I just burst into tears thinking of the lost 15 years. When I read Dragonfly in Amber, the Diana Gabaldon book that had Jamie and Claire reuniting after their daughter was grown up--SOB!

All I can think of in these stories is lost opportunities, experiences missed, never to be regained. I like reunion romances, because the characters have to grow and change to come at the relationship again in a stronger way, but by the same token, I don't think I could ever write a secret baby story because of what the father would have missed in his child's life--pictures and videos don't make up for not being there.

This video's about 7 minutes. Let me know what you think.
