Love isn’t an act, it’s a whole life. It’s staying together because you need each other. It’s knowing that you two will still care after sex and dreams, fights and future, when all that’s left with was done. It’s you at 76 and him at 80, both listening out for each other’s footstep in the next room, both afraid that a sudden silence, a sudden cry, would mean that a lifetime’s talk is over.
