I’ve Loved You For A Thousand Years

What is love?

” Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast and it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking , it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoiced in the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”

– 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Love always perseveres.

Like the flowers, her life has slowly withered and returned to the earth. But her love and kindness still manifest in people who’ve onced met her.

Love never fails.
