A "Love" Story

Once upon a time there was an island where all the
feelings lived;
happiness, sadness, knowledge, and all the others,
including love.

One day it was announced to all of the feelings
that the island was
going to sink to the bottom of the ocean. So all
the feelings prepared
their boats to leave.

Love was the only one that stayed. She wanted to
preserve the island
paradise until the last possible moment.

When the island was almost totally under love
decided it was time to
leave. She began looking for someone to ask for
help. Just then Richness
was passing by in a grand boat. Love asked,
"Richness, Can I come with
you on your boat?" Richness answered, " I'm sorry,
but there is a lot of
silver and gold on my boat and there would be no
room for you anywhere."
Then Love decided to ask Vanity for help who was
passing in a beautiful
vessel.

Love cried out, "Vanity, help me please." "I can't
help you", Vanity
said, " You are all wet and will damage my
beautiful boat." Next, Love
saw Sadness passing by. Love said, " Sadness,
please let me go with
you." Sadness answered, "Love, I'm sorry, but, I
just need to be alone
now." Then, Love saw Happiness. Love cried out, "
Happiness, please take
me with you." But Happiness was so overjoyed that
he didn't hear Love
calling to him.

Love began to cry. Then, she heard a voice say,
"Come Love, I will take
you with me." It was an elder.

Love felt so blessed and overjoyed that she forgot
to ask the elder his
name. When they arrived on land the elder went on
his way. Love realized
how much she owed the elder.

Love then found Knowledge and asked, "Who was it
that helped me?" "It
was Time", Knowledge answered. "But why did Time
help me when no one
else would?", Love asked. Knowledge smiled and
with deep wisdom and
sincerity, answered, "Because only Time is capable
of understanding how
great Love is."
