Living with the reality of "true love"
Ah, true love, the longed for prize. Is it ever a reality? Is it only a fantasy idealized in poetry?
I think perhaps warm passions are only physical lust. Maybe thatís all there is. Physical attraction is the
best that most people get. If itís real why is it, that true love dies. Where did that everlasting soul-mate connection get lost?
I have lived a long time. In my lifetime I have seen many so-called true love connections break into a million pieces. Recently, I have seen it up close and personal within my own family. It happens to friends and neighbors alike. Itís whispered about in coffee houses with sadness. ďWhat happened I thought they were so happy?Ē No one seems to have an answer. What do we do we hope and hope, is that wrong?
Hope may be misplaced this time. Perhaps, instead we should not expect so much and learn to settle with the best we can get. A relationship thatís comfortable, and stable may be what we should be hoping for. Letís reconsider losing the firework passions and the stars in our eyes.
Reality is mundane day-to-day functioning, its grocery shopping, its dental bills, and itís keeping healthy. Instead, lets give up the starry skies and the moons glow and care for family as though itís all we have. In truth, it is all we have.
