What if --we didn't expect love to fail? --we believe love overcomes all obstacles - even an empty bank account? --we didn't enhance negativity to suck the life from the positive? --we didn't focus on the past and future? --we didn't overlook the present? --we didn't consider the journey a waste even after the wheels came off? --we didn't live at the mercy of others' judgments - or even our own? --we were not in bondage to our fears? --we never justified bitterness as the reason to end a relationship? --we chose to be happy when everything seemed wrong? --we were convinced that there is a higher spiritual way that supersedes the stiff unbending symbols? --we were sure that living is about learning to love - empowering ourselves and others in our relationships? --we practiced kindness and respect as the highest forms of love? --we tried to understand rather than to judge? ???
