I have just remembered a conversation I had with someone who means the world to me, and thought I would share it with you.
She asked me
"Is it not for the best to love someone, if only for a short while? We have so little time on this Earth that we owe it to ourselves to surrender ourselves to that almighty feeling, and just embrace it?"
I only had one response:
"For me, love is not something to be given temporarily. Though it may not work out as such, my hope is that when I fall in love with someone, it is so powerful, so strong and timeless, that even should the universe tear itself in half, she would be waiting for me on the other side"
Two very different and yet very true viewpoints on love
