Analysis of Love of a Lifetime

To be is to live.

To live is to love.

To love is to have lived a life worth living.

Love for the mere sake of love is a lifeless love.

Love with out engaging the soul is a pointless life.

Freely give your heart and soul and expect nothing in return.

Go and Love for the sake of your soul.

Go and Love and you will never be the same again.

Go and Love in those precious moments that we all yearn for.

For in the end, love is all there is.
