Quote 29 Apr

あい 口で言うのはかんたんだ
愛 文字で書くのもむずかしくない

あい 気持ちはだれでも知っている
愛 悲しいくらい好きになること

あい いつでもそばにいたいこと
愛 いつまでも生きていてほしいと願うこと

あい それは愛ということばじゃない
愛 それは気持ちだけでもない

あい はるかな過去を忘れないこと
愛 見えない未来を信じること

あい くりかえしくりかえし考えること
愛 いのちをかけて生きること

Love is easy to say
Love is not difficult to write, either.

Love is a feeling everyone knows.
Love is to love even to the point of sadness.

Love is to want to be with you always.
Love is to want you to live forever.

Love is not just the word ‘Love’.
Love is not just a feeling, either.

Love is to remember the distant past.
Love is to believe in an invisible future.

Love is to think over and over again.
Love is to live at the risk of your life.
