~*~ Love and Time ~*~

Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others, including Love. One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all constructed boats and left. Except for Love
Love was the only one who stayed. Love wanted to hold out until the last possible moment

When the island had almost sunk, Love decided to ask for help

Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said
?Richness, can you take me with you
Richness answered, No, I can't. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat
There is no place here for you

Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel
!Vanity, please help me
I can't help you, Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat,Vanity answered

Sadness was close by so Love asked, Sadness, let me go with you

?Oh . . . Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself

Happiness passed by Love, too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her

Suddenly, there was a voice, Come, Love, I will take you. It was an elder. So blessed and overjoyed, Love even forgot to ask the elder where they were going. When they arrived at dry land, the elder went her own way. Realizing how much was owed the elder

Love asked Knowledge, another elder
?Who Helped me
It was Time, Knowledge answered
Time? asked Love
?But why did Time help me
Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, Because only Time is
.capable of understanding how valuable Love is
