Thoughts about Love

It's just a word. A word that has an endless depth. A depth greater than any ocean; as vast and as beautiful as the universe itself.
Over time it's meanings in American English have come to encompass any great feeling of happiness or intimacy with something. "I love my new shoes." and "I love my family." Two completely different emotions expressed in the same word.
A word as light as it is dark. One that holds not only the greatest ecstasy for the soul but also the most dire misery. Its dual nature a mystery that has drawn the human race from the beginning. We will never be tired of Love, and Love Lost in some way crushes all who hear of it.
True Love.
Since the simple word Love has come to bear so much English speakers have had to add another word to express the weight and purity of Love. A word that is a facet of God himself; Truth.
A True Love never fails, even when it is lost. A True Love encompasses and accepts all the light and dark of it's deep being. A True Love is the most important part of God. The thing that initiates Sacrifice and Loyalty, Patience and Forgiveness, an embodiment of all that is worth fighting for and through.
True Love.
What everyone yearns for, whether they know it or not.

Jex I don't know if you read this... but for the whole world to see... I Love you, I Truly Love you.

"Death cannot stop True Love, only delay it for a little while." ~Westley (man in black), The Princess Bride
