No Matter How Painful

…remains deep and true. For you I would give up my future and even my life without hesitation. Through your illness I will stand by you, be with you and hold you. Nothing can take me away from you… NOTHING.

From “Dear John” by American novelist Nicholas Sparks.

through it allI finally
what true
love meant.
…love meant that
you care for
another person’s
happiness more
than your own,
no matter how
the choices
you face
might be.
