If you choose to stay with your partner when the stress and work hits, if you choose to listen and understand their side of the problem, that’s when you know that love, true love, can transcend anything. There is no better feeling than being able to move mountains, to go the distance, and to transcend all of life’s burdens.

Maybe after more time, I’m sure, things will be brighter. I’ll be able to think about you without breaking down in tears. I’ll be able to play that song, and actually sing along with the words. You’ll be a fond memory, something I can go back to and reminisce upon. But there’ll always be that twinge of sadness, that prickle of longing and hurt, that feeling of something unfinished.
