Love And Time
Love is a quality
Time is a quantity
Love is a qualitative piece of eternity
Time is a quantitative piece of eternity
Should love be timed?
Should time be loved?
I’m thinking there is a connection between love and time. The “poem” above gives you an idea of what I mean. I put the word “poem” in quotes to emphasize that I’m not comfortable in declaring that it is a poem. Verbiage, statements, rambling, etc. might be better descriptions, but for now, I think I will call it poetry.
Now let’s dive deeper into love and time. There is a short story entitled “Love And Time” that shows how love and other feelings we humans have can be metaphorically viewed. The last line declares that only time is capable of understanding how valuable love is. How true.
From my point of view, being a person who is beyond mature, time truly has given me the understanding of how valuable love is. As a child, I saw love as a “feel-good” emotion. I now see love as an emotion that I only understand with the passing of time AND that for love to be true it must be tested with time.
Perhaps Laura Nyro said it best in her song Time And Love . She sang that “nothing cures like time and love.” If it takes time to have true love and love is, at least in my opinion, a good and “curing” emotion, then indeed, I have the answers to my questions.
Should love be timed? YES!
Should time be loved? YES!
