LOVE…such a wonderful feeling
The most wonderful of all things in life, I believe, is the discovery of anotherhuman being with whom one’s relationship has a glowing depth, beauty, and joyas the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beingsis a most marvelous thing, it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionatelywishing for it. It is a sort of Divine accident.I don’t pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me; love is knowing all about someone, and still wanting to be with them more than any other person, love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of, love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you. Love is miraculous, and when you find it, don’t ever let it go.
LOVE…such a wonderful feeling isn’t it? If you are one of the many few who have not been fortunate enough to have experienced this euphoric emotion known as true love you don’t know what you have been missing. I am going to attempt to do my best to describe this amazing feeling to you, but in all truthfulness this feeling that you get is almost indescribable. It’s almost as if you are walking on white fluffy clouds. Every spoken word that you hear sounds like Shakespeare to your ears. You hear Angels and harps everywhere you go, you finally get the true meaning of all the words to the love songs on the radio and you feel like there isn’t a care in the world. You might not know how on Earth you are going to pay your rent next month or where that next car payment is coming from but man, once you have that sweet feeling of love in your life nothing else truly matters because that’s all the riches that you would ever need to survive. When you have love, anything is possible. You can defy any odds. You are, dare I say, invincible…
Okay, not all of that is really true, but honestly, what is love? Love is much more than just a risk, but is a risk that one can take and grasp and fall into a dark abyss or dig oneself a hole and only crawl back when you overcome your emotions. Love goes way beyond the intimacy of the hugging and kissing and all the other signs of affection that one person shows to another. True love is unconditional. That is where you love someone without expecting love in return. Love is trusting someone with your life and having faith that they would not hurt you. When you love someone you allow them to grow and you don’t smother them. You can be supportive yet give them their space when they need it. But how can one truly define what love is? Not even an experienced person can truly grasp or explain love to its truest and deepest meaning. Its concepts are just a never ending story of an open book of experiences. But love does lie in one’s heart, where memories are but shadows lingering in your soul.
My definition of love is this, and it may seem simple enough. To me, love would be when you always want to be together, and when you’re not, you’re thinking about being together because you need that person; and without them, your life feels empty and incomplete. It’s when you trust the other with your life; and when you would do anything for each other. When you love someone, you want nothing more than for them to be really happy no matter what it takes because their happiness means everything to you and their needs come before your own. It’s when they are the last thing that you think about before you go to sleep and when they are the first thing you think of when you wake up. Love is giving someone the power to destroy you, and trusting them not to. When they are with you, your heart races. When they touch you, you get butterflies in your stomach. When you kiss, it just takes your breath away. It’s when you can’t get that goofy smile off your face; and you feel like you’ve been touched by an angel. You feel pity for everybody else because you are thinking to yourself that they can’t possibly be feeling what you’re feeling.
