Love is not forever and neither are you. Forever is make-believe and that’s okay too.
Like every emotion, your love will change. It can become a new love but it will never the be the same. You will not be who you were last year and your lover won’t be who you fell in love with the next.
If this sounds like the dark ramblings of a single man on Valentine’s Day let me correct you: I am in love and in an excellent relationship. I have a boyfriend who treats me like a prince. I am fortunate.
After a break up a few years back, I wrote a song, to sum up the experience of love’s conclusion – it wasn’t about the situation but the feeling it was inevitable, another cycle had run its course.
