Why do people always expect love to have the drama and the fireworks? Why do people always expect love to be ground-shaking and earth-shattering?
What if love doesn't come with the bells and whistles? What if love just creeps into your heart and settles there quietly, silently, firmly?
What if love is not about setting your heart a-flutter everytime you think of the other? What if love is just about enjoying moments you spend with the other?
What if love isn't about the fanfare? What if love just is?
Maybe I am jaded by love, but I think love is way too over-rated.
What if love doesn't send you to seventh-heaven, but reminds you to keep smiling while you are on earth? What if love doesn't sweep you off your feet, but reminds you there is someone else willing to walk beside you?
What if love doesn't come with a big bang? But just sits with you, thinks about you, cares for you, asks you out, makes you laugh, writes you SMS-es, knows that you love kai-lan yet sends you a broccoli instead because it looks prettier.
What if love is not the answer to why you go on living? What if love just is one of those things that makes you glad you are still breathing today?
