Romance Verses Love

Romance is fleeting, but love is long.
Romance is flying, but love is a safe landing.
Romance seeks perfection, but love forgives faults.
Romance anguishes as it waits for the phone to ring
 to bring a voice that says sweet things,
but love is the anguish of waiting for a call that assures
 you someone else is safe and happy.
Romance is suspense, anticipation and surprise, but love is dependability.
Romance is dancing in the moonlight, gazing deep into desired eyes,
but love is saying, "You're tired, honey, I'll get up this time."
Romance is delicious, but love nourishes.

  2. Sooo good...thanks for sharing. I'm with Abigail on the favorite line tally.

    A very wise woman once told me: Marriage is not 50/50. Marriage is not 100/100. Marriage is 100/0...giving 100% and expecting NOTHING in return. Why is that so hard to remember?!

    Love you!
