Love isn't an act. it's a whole life. It's staying with her now because she needs you: it's knowing you and she will still care about each other when daydreams, fights and futures - when all thats on a shelf and done with. Love - why. I'll tell you what love is: it's you at seventy-five and her at seventy-one. Wach of you listening for the other's step in the next room. Each afraid that a sudden silence, a sudden cry. Is a lifetime's talk over.
