“Love can carry us through all of this. It doesn’t age. Its back doesn’t go out. It doesn’t get arthritis, or need a motor. It doesn’t lose its hearing or become forgetful. It is what keeps on when the years get late and our hair is grey. It’s what can heal and buoy us through anything. I want to be old with you, yes, but I want to feel young with you forever.”
I finished reading the words and found myself speechless. I was a single mother, yet this selfless bachelor had come into my life, and he had literally changed everything. I’d never known a love like this.
