The little girl noticed the little boy with the cute dimple glancing her way. She quickly looked away, not wanting to give him the time of day. Still, she couldn't resist the urge to look again. There he was, smiling and waving, as if he'd known her for the entire 10 years that she'd been alive on planet earth! So, throwing caution to the wind, she walked across the playground toward him, at a rather leisurely pace, of course. When she got to where he was standing he stopped smiling, looked into her beautiful brown eyes and simply said: "I love you." Her face got as red as a tomato and she ran into the school gym as fast as she could and hid behind the basketball stands. There was a little tear in her eye, as she struggled with the emotions that were flooding her young heart.
The next day she saw him again. This time though, when her eyes met his, he turned away, with a sullen look on his face. She wondered to herself if it was possible that he loved her for only a day, and then forgot about her! "ONLY ONE DAY," she cried aloud? Well, that was it! She was determined to go straight over to him and to inquire as to just what this whole love thing was about. As she approached, his back to her, she tapped him on the shoulder and said: " Now look uh...uh... by the way, what is your name?" He softly replied: "Jimmy." "Well look Jimmy, yesterday you told me that you loved me and today you won't even look my way, what's up with that?" Jimmy just looked into her eyes, his tearing up, and said: "I'm sorry uh... uh... what was your name?" "Sarah," she replied. "Sarah, yesterday when I got home from school my mom told me that my dog, Jasper, had been hit by a car and died. So you see, I really do love you, but today I'm just really down." With that, Sarah, her eyes now swollen and red with tears, took his hand gently in hers and said: "I'm here for you, Jimmy." He impulsively moved his head toward hers and softly kissed her cheek, the first of many that would span a lifetime.
Love is the past, the future, the now
Love holds true to the original vow
Love endures pain, sorrow, and grief
Love doesn't cheat, love plays for keeps
The essence of love is found in the heart
That strong sense that neither would e're depart
And if you should find the one that's for you
Please love her till death, forever be true
