When I spot an elderly couple strolling down the street or sitting on a park bench, I wonder. Do they still feel the same fluttering in their hearts as when they first fell in love? In a disposable world, where so much is readily upgraded, can monogamous love endure?
You meet your soul mate — You feel wanted, needed, respected, appreciated, and adored. You come to life in this person’s presence, passion energizing every step. There is nothing the two of you cannot conquer together.
What happens that causes such a perfect relationship to shred without possibility of salvage? Do some require a vast library full of archived lovers to prove their mass appeal? Something to point back to and exclaim how loved they once were, all the while scrambling for their next conquest?
Love may mellow with everyday routine, but a lifetime of shared experiences and memories bond a couple in a way that those constantly on the prowl will never enjoy.
If you are fortunate enough to find your true companion, pour out your heart and soul even when you’re tired, bored, or frustrated. Silently take their hand and remember the weakness in your knees, the thundering of your heart, how you were nearly sick with pleasure when you first met.
Never forget and love will endure…
