True Love

What is True love? People, including myself, have many different opinions on the answer to that very question. The formal definition states that love is; intense affection, a feeling of attraction resulting from sexual desire, and enthusiasm or fondness. Although these every part of that definition is true, there is a deeper meaning to this word, it is a feeling, a choice, even a state of mind.

True love is an experience that is much anticipated, it is one of the most substantial reasons why people live.

The two persons are one in heart, mind, body, and soul. True love can never be broken, stolen, misplaced, forgotten, or lost, for it lives forever and ever.
