Love's Platoon

Love is providing back-up when the platoon needs it.

Your Platoon.

Love is pushing one to do better and go farther than even the person receiving the love thought possible.

Love is being loved by someone that encouraged you to love yourself, in turn, made you love someone else.

Because I love you, I won't do you wrong.

Because I love you, I'll stop you from doing stupid things.

Because I love you, I don't expect you to love me.

I don't expect you to love yourself, the world, your family and friends, your country, or even yourself.

"So let me love you until you learn to love yourself."

Because my love is running dry, I need back-up too, just like you do...

A healthy relationship requires me plus you.

Because I love you, I want you to love me as I do you.

So this cycle of love can continue being a cycle and never run dry.
