When you've been hurt beyond any fathomable measure...when you not only gag at the mention of relationships and Valentine's Day but feel like smacking the idiot who "thinks" they have it...and realizing that love doesn't exist at all.
Then in the blink of an eye...in the place you never looked...never expected...and could never really understand even if you wanted to...you didn't find true love...it found you. He/she found you.
And they not only healed your broken soul but created an irreplaceable shield for your heart.
True love is being corny but really meaning it.
True love is knowing your friends will be mad you didn't hang out with them, but knowing it'll all be ok as long as you can be with that person.
True love is realizing they're not perfect--but not settling...appreciating.
True love is giving everything you have, everything you are, and not caring whether or not you get something out of it...but knowing in your heart you will because they feel the same.
True love is finding yourself thinking about the most insignificant thing they said to you today and smiling like there's no tomorrow.
Basically...true love is the action...not just the phrase.
A little blurb about true love I came up with off the top of my head:
When you say "I love you", you can lie.
When you say "I need you", it can be for a short time.
When you say "I want you", you can want someone else too.
But if you spend every day, every night, every moment devoted to me, I'll know your love is true.
