You ever stop to wonder why the moon and the stars appear together?
Why the stars shine bright
But never as bright as the moon
Why they glimmer behind the moon
Like an entourage of beauty admiring their greater form
You’re my moon
I stand behind you as your protector
I sprinkle myself in every space that surrounds you so that you never feel alone.
I shine alongside you when nights come that you feel dull
You are my aspiration
What I look to be
How I look to grow
Your strength and visibility
Your power to shift oceans and ability to transform
I’ll always be the stars that surround you
You are my moon
The light that guides me
The versatile diversity
Taking on only classic beautiful shapes
That I could only dream to be like.
I love you moon, I’ll rise and set alongside you every night.
When you don’t shine as bright and when Im not as visible.
Well still rise. And set.
With each other
That’s truly what makes us special.
Today I spoke to my boss about a common topic, love. He’s mentioned the idea of living with love before, taught to him by his spiritual beliefs and I knew I agreed with him but today as I felt my world crumbling and the anxiety of fear took over me I realized that what he says is true.
To know true love is not to have someone you obsess over, it isn’t to about fights or materialistic things. It’s about getting to that unconditional point. Once you’re there nothing else matters. Loving people unconditionally is the most difficult task known to man. It means loving a person when they’re right and loving them when they’re wrong. Loving them enough to let them make mistakes and making decisions based on love, not on glorious self absorbed ideas.
Like I said it’s the hardest thing to do in the world. Love someone even when you don’t feel they deserve it, love someone when they don’t love themselves, love them enough to walk away, stay or fight. But living by the act of love means complete selflessness. If you don’t think you’re capable of that then you’re not ready for true love.
I think about the conflicts I have, about how minuscule they are. Insignificant. How millions of other people are losing their lives, fighting, struggling, dealing with infidelity and betrayal. I reflect on the walks home that those issues we have are entirely my fault. Anything from being needy to demanding and territorial. I realize that to love you unconditionally I must work with your current, not against it. I must listen before I speak and feel before I act. Take this as a public apology, a claim of unconditional love. I may make mistakes and stumble down this road we walk together but in my mind and heart the pleasure of the journey and the destination is the same, it starts with you.
If you’re reading this then you have a chance at unconditional love. Living by love teaches you things about yourself, others and the world. Living by love makes decisions more satisfying and change your mindset from having to do something, to do something because you want to.
It seems that you are,
The truth itself cause nothing else can take me so far.
I’m always thinking of any stories that I know of, plots that end in happy endings. People who’ve made it in their relationship with tests such as distance, age, time, sexual preference. Some of these are successes, others failures and far and few in between there’s many that are a bit of both.
I think of these stories to help me cope with the negative thoughts that sometimes surface when it comes to my love. No love is perfect and ours has it’s complications, were only human and when doubts begin to surface all we can do is look to the past, dig in history books and fairy tale endings to determine the odds of our future.
What I failed to realize until an eight hour drive set my head straight was that were creating our own fairy tale. This is our history book to write and the outcome is based on the effort and determination that we both put in. If we lack patience and understanding, overflow with tension and conflict, and miss the point of love and friendship our connection will be reduced, recycled and reused before the next decade can come around.
Instead we have to nurture our love. Like the child we discuss bringing into the world we must cater to our foundation first. Tend to it’s needs, understand that not all cries and screams can be comprehended and the best thing to do is be there until things start to become clearer. I must love you unconditionally, despite all flaws and complications, including all perfections and accomplishments because you are my own and you must love me the same in return.
Our story is ours to create as well as to destroy. I no longer want to look to others relationships as examples of what I think love should be, I know what it is when I’m with you and I NEVER want to lose that.
