Love to Continue

We need the air that fills our lungs, the food that fuels our bodies.

We need the comfort of shelter and the idea of our freedom.

But more than any of our other needs and desires we need love.

We need love.

Not the kind of love that we feel in every fiber of our beings, that's accompanied by butterflies.

We need the kind of love that makes us dream bigger, try harder, not give.

The kind of love that makes us want to make someone else proud.

The kind of love that makes us work harder to insure that those dearest to our hearts don't have to struggle as much.

The kind of love that encourages us to continue when the days feel long and nights short.

We need a lot of things but most importantly love.
