Scene 1: She has encountered a lot of people asking her Why? Why is it that despite the lies, heartaches and disappointments he did to her before, she easily found it in her heart to forgive him. Her reply is never changing..Because she loves him.She loves him without conditions and restrictions. If loving would cause pain, its natural.As the old saying goes, love is not just a bed of roses.It can be a bed of roses but it is not all soft and smooth petals..stems with thorns are part of it.
Scene 2: He also had experienced the same question, why her? His answer is always consistent because love is not love without her. Her past no longer matters to him. He accepted her including her kids; he knows its a package deal. Love one and get two for free. With his unconditional love, he gave her a family she always dream of.
Scene 3: They were together for more than three decades as husband and wife. They were boyfriend and girlfriend for nine years before they got married. 40 years of their lives were spent together. But in the blink of an eye, death took its toll. She was devastated and her whole world tore apart. She wished that God would take her as well. Reasons are still not clear on why things like this should happen. But her love for him is still true. And she awaits until they see each other again to continue their endless love.
Scene 4: Tragic accident almost took his life. He was rushed to the hospital after being mugged by unknown men. She broke down when she learned that there was a clot on his brain and needs to undergo surgery to have his life. She prayed so hard but did not ask God why it happened. She made a bargain. Its okay for her not to bear a child as long as he will be safe. He is doing great right now but no child is born out of her womb yet. Maybe just maybe, God will soon give them the child they are praying so hard for. In God’s time.
There are a lot of stories one can share about love. It is not easy to understand. However, it doesn’t take a genius to know that Love is what they feel. Love can make you cry, it can make you sigh. It will make you laugh yet it can break your heart. There are no right or wrong when it comes to Love. It happens only when morality and traditions has to step-in. It is a wonderful feeling to some. But can be dreadful to others.
But Love is Love no matter how we define it. It doesn’t need an exact definition. It just needs to be shared.
Happy Valentine's Day to all!
