Sometimes we feel that life’s a battle, and we’re alone.  We feel that when no one is willing to hear us out, or when no one is willing to fight the fight with us.  We feel that we are alone when there’s no out to reach out.  When staring outside the window, we see only darkness and silence.
So why is it that we need someone else?  Why is it that we have to feel as if there’s something missing, something that’s been taken away from us, something that only another person can give us?
Something that can’t be bought.
Something that can’t be stolen.
Something that can’t be defined or understood or seen.
Something we all need, we all want.
And when you find that something, that’s when you’re complete.  Perfect.  Happy.
That’s when all your dreams become possible, no matter how crazy they really are, when your biggest fears die.
You’re not afraid anymore.
You’re not alone anymore.
Love is simply this: we give the best of our hearts to someone who’s willing to fight the fight with us.  Nothing else really matters.  Distance, age, sex, whatever.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.  I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.
   ―  Pablo Neruda
From his book of poetry: “100 Love Sonnets

Even in sin, the act of love  – done with love –  is shadowed with divinity.  Its conformity may be at fault, but its nature is not altered, and its nature is creative, communicative, splendid in surrender.  It was in the splendor of my surrender to Nina and she to me, that I first understood how a man might surrender himself to God  – if a God existed.  The moment of love is a moment of union  – of body and spirit –  and the act of faith is mutual and implicit.

“I’m in love with you,” he said quietly.
“Augustus,” I said.
“I am,” he said.  He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling.  “I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things.  I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”
   ―  John Green,
From his book: “The Fault In Our Stars

What Else Matters?

You may not be her first, her last, or her only.  She loved before; she may love again.  But if she loves you now, what else matters?  She’s not perfect — you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together, but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can.  She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break — her heart.  So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give.  Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.
