takes time
It needs a history of giving,
And receiving, laughing, and crying.

Love doesn't promise instant gratification
Only ultimate fulfillment.

Love means believing in someone, in something:
It presupposes willingness
To struggle, to work, to suffer, and to rejoice.

Love is doing everything you
Can to help the other
Build whatever dreams they have.

Love is on constant search for
What the other needs.
It is attentive, caring
And open,

Both to what other say and do,
And what the other cannot say.

Love will never reject another.
It is first to encourage, and
The last to condemn.

Love is a commitment to
Growth, happiness, and
Fulfillment of one another.

Love suffers long and is kind:
Love does not envy:
Is not puffed up:
Does not seek its own.
Is not provoked,
Thinks no evil.

Does not rejoice in iniquity
But rejoices in the truth
Bears all things,
Believes all things
Endures all things
Love never fails.
