I can tell you this thread just got deep. Hopcott I almost cried that was beautifully worded. My problem is I love my mother to much but can't get rid of dad fast enough. hehehe
But LOVE is true I personally found mine. He is 11 years older but I got me a man and not a boy. I didn't have time to mess around with a boy.
We have been married for 15 years, 16 in March where I live that's a record. The key for us is love unconditionally, give a little, take a little but always sway just a little in everything you do. Love alot and then so more......okay that's my two since worth.

Hi Guess

My dad left us when I was seven years old after knocking out my mum. I'll not grieve for him or go to his funeral.

It's only by giving that we receive and my mum, in her own way, gave me and my brother everything she could.

Unconditional love makes the world go around and our lifes streams flow on.

Touching another persons mind is one of the wonders of being human.

I'm truly happy you've found love ...

Guess - you hit the nail on the head there with 'unconditional'. If you really have that, it's fantastic.

To my mind, Love is unconditional. You can't say 'I'll love you, but only if...'. Well, I never could at any rate.

I Love all my children and grandchildren but sometimes I have to say to them "I love you, but today I really don't like you."  The Love will always be there and that is unconditional love.

Is there true Love for real?

I commented earlier about a Love of mine that has lasted since 1989. OK, I'm currently Chardonnay sodden, and feeling very sentimental. But I made the comment recently on another thread of mine that 'There is too much interference from my past for me to be able to 'tune in' to someone new'. Maybe these (slightly adapted by me)words to a well known song might explain this 'interference', and my feelings on this subject:

Love, to thee my thoughts are turning
All through the night
All for thee my heart is yearning,
All through the night.
Though sad fate our lives have severed,
Parting will not last forever,
There's a hope that leaves me never,
All through the night.

Right, sorry for being a sentimental old git;and just to spoil the mood, I'm off to bed.  I've got to be up for work tonight.

Dave.

P.S. Could this be a contender for the No.1 way to kill a thread?

DC- You didn't kill the thread, just made it interesting.
You can't live in the past because the word past is as it says (PAST)
A lot of people have had experiences with relationships I'll even give you an example this guy I know he's been married 8x's and you'd think after the 3rd or 4th he'd give up but not ole Grady WH**E to the bone.  8) But he still gets up every morning to a woman by his side. Gosh that sounds scary after I put it on the computer screen.
Try not to let your past get in the way of that one true love that will make your spine tingle your heart beat an extra beat or makes you smile for no reason at all.
Love is well worth another try.
Hey look at it this way, all the rest of the people in your other relationships were trial errors but the next one might be the ONE ;)

That's a fine piece of writing!

Do you find writing down your feelings helps to heal the wound?

If so, perhaps there is a short story or even a novel just waiting to come out.

Perhaps, if it wasn't for the ups and downs of love, loving and lovers, there would be a lot less literature.

Agreed. Love and love lost spurs the writer.

When you feel it rip out your guts you know it's real. By then it's too late. :(
So yes and  yes.

Hopcott, writing is one way since I am a writer it only makes since to write it down if you don't care for people reading it. I personally am not ashamed of anything I write. Well, I guess I am if it has editing errors.
Funwriter is right.
DGSquared is right too.
If you have any of these symptoms or had any them you have a story as Hopcott said.

I've just spooled back to the beginning of this thread and cried my way through it.

What else should I do [after 27 years] when she comes home after visiting the children from her FIRST marriage (and I helped her raise both of them from very young) ....  and says it's over ......???

I've just read through this thread from beginning again. It catches my breath. It nods my head in agreement. It tugs at my heart.

I keep promising myself that I must write down some of these thoughts, so that I have them handy on the days I need to be reminded, or I want to express the thoughts and the words do not come.

My heart goes out to you, Bagheera. I don't know the words to say that you long to hear. The sting of loss is probably too sharp to find the memories of the times together this thread heralds. You have loved and been loved. That matters too.

Spend time with us, MWC, to fill the hours when you don't want to be alone.

I so want to believe in true love, but I don't think I can.
My great grandfather left his family and committed suicide.
His son, my grandfather, was send away to Australia when he was six, his mother never sent for him, not even when the war was over.
When he grew up he became an alcoholic and abused my grandmother and my mother.
When he died, he had not spoken to mum for 7 years.
My mother married young and had 1 child, her husband became an alcoholic and left her for the drink.
She then met my father who trated her like a princess until the day after the wedding....
He abused us all throughout my childhood.
He then became critically ill, the doctors predict he only has a year or less left.
My boyfriend left me for my best friend.

So, maybe I'm a little off the idea of true love, and that was only one half of the family!
Still, the writing helps, and hey, I've got you guys!

Love to all,
Broken
