As for him, he only endured it in silence. After a couple of years, the guy finally graduated & decided to further his studies overseas. Before leaving, he proposed to the gal: "I'm not very good with words. But all I know is that I love you. If you allow me, I will take care of you for the rest of my life. As for your family, I'll try my best to talk them round. Will you marry me?" The girl agreed, & with the guy's determination, the family finally gave in & agreed to let them get married. So before he left, they got engaged. The gal went out to the working society, whereas the guy was overseas, continuing his studies.
They sent their love through emails & phone calls. Though it was hard, but both never thought of giving up. One day, while the gal was on her way to work, she was knocked down by a car that lost control. When she woke up, she saw her parents beside her bed. She realized that she was badly injured. Seeing her mum crying, she wanted to comfort her. But she realized that all that could come out of her mouth was just a sigh. She had lost her voice.... The doctors say that the impact on her brain has caused her to lose her voice. Listening to her parents' comfort, but with nothing coming out from her, she broke down. During the stay in hospital, besides silence cry, it's still just silence cry that accompanied her. Upon reaching home, everything seems to be the same.
Except for the ringing tone of the phone. Which pierced into her heart every time it rang? She does not wish to let the guy know. & not wanting to be a burden to him, she wrote a letter to him saying that she does not wish to wait any longer. With that, she sent the ring back to him. In return, the guy sent >millions & millions of reply, countless of phone calls, all the gal could do, besides crying, is still crying....
The parents decided to move away, hoping that she could eventually forget everything & be happy. With a new environment, the gal learns sign language & started a new life. Telling herself everyday that she must forget the guy. One day, her friend came & told her that he's back. She asked her friend not to let him know what happened to her. Since then, there wasn't anymore news of him. A year has passed & her friend came with an envelope, containing an invitation card for the guy's wedding. The gal was shattered.
When she opens the letter, she saw her name in it instead. When she was about to ask her friend what's going on, she saw the guy standing in front of her. He used sign language to tell her "I've spent a year to learn sign language. Just to let you know that I've not forgotten our promise. Let me have the chance to be your voice. I Love You." With that, he slipped the ring back into her finger. The gal finally smiled.
Treat every relationship as if it's the last one, then you'll know how to give. Treat every moment as is it's the last day, and then you'll know how to treasure. Treasure what you have right now, or else you will regret one day...

As I sat there in English class, I stared at the girl next to me. She was my so called "best friend". I stared at her long, silky hair, and wished she was mine. But she didn't notice me like that, and I knew it. After class, she walked up to me and asked me for the notes she had missed the day before and handed them to her. She said "thanks" and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I wanted to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends, I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.
The phone rang. On the other end, it was her. She was in tears, mumbling on and on about how her love had broke her heart. She asked me to come over because she didn't want to be alone, so I did. As I sat next to her on the sofa, I stared at her soft eyes, wishing she was mine. After 2 hours, one Drew Barrymore movie, and three bags of chips, she decided to go to sleep. She looked at me, said "thanks" and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends, I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.
The day before prom she walked to my locker. My date is sick" she said; he's not going to go well, I didn't have a date, and in 7th grade, we made a promise that if neither of us had dates, we would go together just as "best friends". So we did. Prom night, after everything was over, I was standing at her front door step. I stared at her as she smiled at me and stared at me with her crystal eyes. I want her to be mine, but she isn't think of me like that, and I know it. Then she said "I had the best time, thanks!" and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends, I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.
A day passed, then a week, then a month. Before I could blink, it was graduation day. I watched as her perfect body floated like an angel up on stage to get her diploma. I wanted her to be mine, but she didn't notice me like that, and I knew it. Before everyone went home, she came to me in her smock and hat, and cried as I hugged her. Then she lifted her head from my shoulder and said, "you're my best friend, thanks" and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends, I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.
A Few Years Later
Now I sit in the pews of the church. That girl is getting married now. I watched her say "I do" and drive off to her new life, married to another man. I wanted her to be mine, but she didn't see me like that, and I knew it. But before she drove away, she came to me and said "you came!". She said "thanks" and kissed me on the cheek. I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends, I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.
Years passed, I looked down at the coffin of a girl who used to be my "best friend". At the service, they read a diary entry she had wrote in her high school years. This is what it read: I stare at him wishing he was mine, but he doesn't notice me like that, and I know it. I want to tell him, I want him to know that I don't want to be just friends, I love him but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why. I wish he would tell me he loved me! `I wish I did too...` I thought to my self, and I cried.

I'm sure everyone of you wondered.. What is Love actually.. ? I have been doing a lot of reading.. and here is what i've found..
How do you define love ?
Some say it's mysterious.. magical.. complex.. dificult.. imaginary.. through-provoking.. inspirational.. intuitional.. joyous.. immeasurable.. ecstacy.. and undefinable.. Perhaps.
"Love is a feeling directed at someone which acknowledges their goodness." - Dr. John Gray
"The willful intent to serve the well being of another." - M. Scott Peck
Love is patient.. Love is kind.. It does not envy.. it does not boast.. it is not proud.. It is not rude.. It is not self-seeking.. It is not easily angered.. It keeps no record of wrongs.. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.. It always protects.. always trusts.. always hopes.. always perseveres.. - Corinthians 13 : 5 - 7
To decribe love is very difficult.. for the same reason that words cannot fully describe a flavour of an orange.. You have to taste the fruit to know its flavour.. So with love.. - Paramahansa Yogananda
Love itself is a universal experience.. Yet.. every individual occurrence.. while perhaps bound by common threads.. seems absolutely unique.. Love is what love is.. To everyone it express itself differently..
All you need is love ! - The Beatles
Love is the answer for all questions !
It is important to stand in love.. not fall into it..
Love is waking up to find the object of your affection in the dream you were having asleep on your shoulder..
Could it be that love is a story that can never be fully expressed ?
Love is seeing an imperfect person perfectly - Sam Keen
Love is a bond or connection between two people that results in trust.. intimacy.. and an interdependence that enhances both partners..
Love is the ability and willingness to allow those you care for to be what they choose for themselves.. without any insistence that they satisfy you.. - Leo Buscaglia
Making love is the highest level and the most loving way we can physically express our love for our love partner.. Everyone knows that the sexual experience can be the single most loving.. most exciting.. most powerful.. most exhilarating.. most renewing.. most energizing.. most affirming.. most intimate.. most uniting.. most stress-relieving.. most recreative physical experience of which humans are capable..
Love is friendship set on fire.. - Jeremy Taylor

Logic says everything in this world has a cause and effect.. True love is the only feeling which is its own cause and its own effect.. It is something illogical and yet above all logic.. I love her coze I love her.. and I love her so I love her.. - Prateek Kumar
Love is comforting someone in need of love and having them know that somebody cares..
Love is looking past imperfections in your partner and seeing the beautiful person inside.. True love seeks the happiness and well being of your partner.. Love expresses itself in the mutual respect you demonstrate to your partner..
Love is like letting your partner have the TV remote for 30 days.. - For The Guys
Love must be experienced.. Its meaning is infinite and can never be totally defined..
The opposite of love is fear.. Think about it..
The is no fear in love.. but perfect love cast out fear.. John 4 : 1

Love is loving someone without expecting anything in return.. no judgments.. no restrictions.. no limitation.. no expectations..
True love is the nature of bliss..
Love is expressed when you are being someone who loves someone for who they are.. not who you think they should be..
Love is embracing differences and discovering ways in which to build a common lifestyle.. share decision-making.. and taking equal responsibility for the results..
I was nauseous and tingly all over.. I was either in Love or I had small pox.. - Woody Allen
Love seeks no cause beyond itself and no fruit.. it is its own fruit.. its own enjoyment.. I love because I love.. I love in order that I may love.. - St. Bernard
Teach only love for that is what you are..
Love is a decision..
If you want love.. you must first love.. love begets love.. you cannot deliver from an empty wagon.. you must first learn to love yourself before you can give love..
Love is not manipulative.. It must never be used to get others to do what you want.. when you love someone you never ask them to sacrifice a part of themselves in the name of love.. This form of manipulation contaminates our love for another..
Cant buy me love.. - The Beatles
Love is to like with a great intensity..
True love has a foundation of integrity.. respect.. faith.. and trust.. Love is the force that brings about unity and harmony..
Celebrate love.. Larry James
Although love is at the root of our basic nature.. love for another human being must be cultivated.. it takes time for love to mature..
Is your love free and unconditional.. or is it mixed with various needs.. conditions.. and demands from your partner ?
The road to self-discovery is paved with Love..
Hatred paralyzes life.. love releases it..
Hatred paralyzes life.. love harmonizes it..
Hatred darkens life.. love illuminates it.. - Martin Luther King, Jr.
Love has no meaning other than the meaning we give it..
Perhaps.. Love just Is.. While in its allness and in its nothingness.. all we need to do is simply let it be..
Love is that condition whereby the happiness of another is essential to your own.. - Robert Heinlein
To demonstrate love.. say.. I love you.. outloud.. at least each day to someone you love.. There is a magic in these 3 little words.. Saying I love you.. is the most beautiful gift you can give to your partner.. these words are the most treasured a person can hear..
One must understand whether " what is love" can be a question which can be answered ? Love cannot be a question.. For it is a question then an answer should be there.. If the answer is there.. where is it ? This question is ancient and an answer should have been found by now.. If the answer has been found.. the question would have disappeared..
But the question still remains.. meaning the answer has not been found.. If is has not been found as yet.. then what is the certainty that it will be found ? Maybe the mind can never find the answer.. A single answer.. which will please all minds.. is not possible for each mind has its own ideas of love.. Hence a universal answer is an illusion..
Individual answers are there for love and for this very reason there are arguments about the love for each mind will contradict the answer of another mind.. This contradiction is normal for each mind lives in a different point in time.. Hence.. "what is love" is an illusionary question.. which has no answer ! - Dr.Vijai
Those are wonderful definitions and opinions about what is love all about..
Well.. for me.. i would say that.. Love is you.. Love is me.. Love is everyone.. without love.. we would not be here..
The world in one word.. Love ! One word all around the world.. Love !
Love is a Gift of God.. Ignore or Misuse it and you may suffer as u can't imagine.. Love should be true.. Love should be Godly.. and Love should be unconditional.. - Alvin Martin a.k.a. Dr.Love
