Love and Time

One upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others, including Love. One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all constructed boats and left. Except for Love.Love was te only one who stayed. Love wanted to hold out until the last possible moment.When the island had almost sunk, Love decided to ask for help.Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said,

“Richness, can you take me with you?”

Richness answered, “No, I can’t. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you.”Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel. “Vanity, please help me!”

“I can’t help you, Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat,” Vanity answered.Sadness was close by so Love asked, “Sadness, let me go with you.”

“Oh . . . Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!”Happiness passed by Love, too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her.Suddenly, there was a voice, “Come, Love, I will take you.” It was an elder. So blessed and overjoyed, Love even forgot to ask the elder where they were going. When they arrived at dry land, the elder went her own way. Realizing how much was owed the elder,Love asked Knowledge, another elder, “Who Helped me?”

“It was Time,” Knowledge answered.

“Time?” asked Love. “But why did Time help me?”

Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, “Because only Time is capable of understanding how valuable Love is.”

  1. Love, Love and Love, where ever I turn – it’s bloody everywhere. It seems I’ve woken from my sleep in a world where everyone is talking about Love, including the bloody birds who sit in the trees on my way into work.

    • Just because you have issues with it doesn’t mean I can’t or anyone else talk about it…

      And lemme tell you something Mr TBAB there are different kinds of love, we love our parents, friends and family and some even their pets… this story applies to a broad minded audience… it isn’t about just boy girl love which you seem to think everything applies to.

      You are lucky to be surrounded by it in many shapes and forms… be grateful…

      • Ha Ha touched a nerve there I think. I fully understand the different types of love, and thanks for the subtle reminder. I talk about the love which hurts the most, and more often which leads to the birth of open relationships.

        I’ve never complained about the other types of love, and the more I think about it the more distorted the word Love has become.

        Let me tell you The Princess Laila of the North, that Love (boy and girl one) is today a cheap word, used too too often for cheap thrills. It’s these such reasons why this word ‘love’ had plummeted in value.

        be grateful, indeed I am hence the reason why I can speak my mind and not just follow the trend.

        • Well Mr TBAB what others do with the word love shouldn’t really be any concern of yours… and quite frankly I think you should stop putting yourself in a position where the word love is getting used for cheap thrills…

          Hurt people don’t lead to open relationships… open relationships is just another form of cheating on one another but with permission… no sneaking around and lying… that is what leads to hurt and pain…

          It’s rare that you will find someone who hasn’t been hurt by the kind of love that you are talking about… so you are not the only one to have experienced it… but people move on eventually and get on with their lives because the world goes on.. people come and go… their story ends in your life and starts somewhere else… this is life…

          It wasn’t a subtle reminder it was loud and clear…

    • Thanks Potato it is nice when someone appreciates things with depth and feeling… I knew it was worth sharing… because when we have vanity riches and all those other things… love ends up taking a back seat… we fail to recognise the importance of it and give other things more importance…
