MartyT Posted December 24, 2013 Report Share Posted December 24, 2013 Brave Love I knew when I decided to love you fully, with all of my cells that I was risking everything. I knew you were human and that you might die younger than either of us wanted. Despite this, I still chose to love all of you with all of me. Because you deserved that and because I did too. And though you did die - younger than either of us wanted - to stand in the pain of your death and continue to love you fully, fiercely, with unwavering dedication, has transformed me. For I know now, that to have given every breath of myself to love the all of you is the most beautifully brave thing I have ever done in my lifetime. It is the single greatest achievement of my life. I have learned that this is what true love is - to choose the possibility of pain for the privilege to be love. It is to risk everything - everything - inside ourselves. It is to meet our greatest fears and decide that it's still worth it, so that we may come to realize that we are capable of giving the kind of love that changes lives and moves mountains. In this way, true, deep, complete love is not easy. It is simple, but not an easy choice. Which is why whenever I see such love in the world It leaves me in awe. Never a more beautiful thing have I seen than the immense bravery of any single human being that chooses to LOVE.
