465 Love [23 February 2002]

A revelation in the path that I follow.

Though my life has not been long
and though my experiences have not been great,
I have learned one thing in all my wanderings
among the foreign lands in my mind:
~to live and be happy.
I know that there is someone out there
just for me,
and he will come.
Maybe not today,
maybe not tomorrow,
but one day he will show up
and I have to live until he comes,
and continue living even when he doesn’t show up.
For the longest time,
I was certain that I needed love
so that I could live
but no,
it is quite the opposite.
you must live and love yourself
before you can truly love.
And I am thankful that I have learned that now,
so I can live my life to the fullest of it’s potential.
I have learned that love isn’t real love
until you’ve actually been
with that someone for a while,
until you know them,
have been intimate with them,
and even with all their flaws
do not turn you away.
if you love them beyond all that,
than that is when it is love.
there is not pure love,
no true love or soul mates,
These do not divide love
it simply is.
love can have different attributes
that makes it what it is
but in the end,
it is love
and all those different parts of a relationship
are the reasons to love
that person you are with.
love sees no color, or sex,
love simply is.
and yet at times so complex,
that not even those who are in love
can explain.
