20 years ago, I dated a guy and we fell in love. He started kissing me in my forehead after we fell in love. One day, I asked him why did he kiss me there. I liked it, I just wanted to know why. He told me it was because I was his and he was mine and the love he has for me is more than can be explained. We were young then, but our love wasn't if you understand that. Unfortunately, we broke up. It was a heartbreaking break up. I was close to his sister so, I stayed touch with them for about a year after he and I broke up. After awhile, I lost contact with them.
May 2014, this friend request pops up on my FB with the name of this woman I recognized, but couldn't remember where I know the name from. When it dawned on me that it was his little sister, I accepted, and I was excited about getting back in contact with her. The very next day, I get a IM from her brother. Now, at first I didn't respond. I didn't know what to do. So, I waited a day. The next day, he hits me up again in the IM asking if I remembered him and he described a Valentine's Day gift I got for him on year. Laughing, I responded and thus began our getting back in contact.
I saw him a few months later. He draped his arms around me in a huge embrace, and he kissed me on my forehead. The action was so natural, that I didn't question it. He tells me, "It's been a long time since I kissed your forehead." And he kisses it again and hugs me tighter.
His explanation of the forehead kiss 20 years ago is still as true now, as it was then. We have this connection that is indescribable. It's this connection that even though I hadn't seen him 20 years, it's like what we meant to each other then, means the same now. We both have married and divorced. We have even discussed our break up and he said that was one of his regrets. So, the meaning of a forehead kiss is deeper than a normal kiss. It's a love that is unmatched and deeper than many of us know. And it lasts even after the person is no longer there.
