Unconditional Love: A True Love Story

Updated on January 9, 2017

Blessed to Have This Feeling: Once in a Lifetime

I think all of us dream of a love like the ones you see in fairy-tales and movies. In reality, if you find this kind of love, you are one of the luckiest people out there, you should hold on to it no matter what it takes, and it will take a lot. It will take understanding. It will take both of you having that different perspective than to just fall in love, get married and live happily ever after. I don’t think that kind of love is a fairy-tale romance anyway. I’m not saying that people who fall in love and get married and end up staying married for forty plus years are not a fairy-tale, but that kind of fairy-tale requires a lot of work, and a lot of patience. Actually, I believe you go through too many nightmares to make it to that fairy-tale. With married couples, they get their fairy-tale in their older years, and they have worked hard and deserve it, believe me; my parents are one of those couples. However, we do not see many people fighting for those types of fairy-tales much anymore; it’s just too darn easy to file for a divorce.

No, I’m talking about those fairy-tales like Rose and Jack had in the Titanic, or Bella and Edward in Twilight, or Noah and Allie in The Notebook. These couples were destined. Did these types of love stories really exist? After all Edward was the 117-year-old vampire, and Jack, well he perished in the sinking of that big ship, and although after years apart Noah and Allie made it back to each other, she forgot who he was in the end. However, they did die in each other’s arms on the same night. All these stories are unfathomable, nevertheless; I believe a few of them could happen in the real world. I believe a story of destiny could happen. I believe I am one of those stories.

My destiny fairy-tale is unique. At first, I did want it to come together like a normal, real romance. You know; fall in love, get married, and in my case adopt children since I’m later in years to have anymore of my own at this point. However, that was unreasonable thinking when who I fell in love with was not a very typical person for me to fall for. To name a few of the issues we would have without really going into great detail; He is younger than me by more than just a few years; relax, he is an adult, but he’s young enough to find a youthful woman who can bare his children. Then there is the long-distance thing; Yep, I have fallen victim to this type of romance; all in all, not a perfect scenario at all.

Even so, there was something unmistakable when we talked, and when we looked at each other over skype conversations; not to mention the extreme attraction that has never gone away. I know it may sound funny, but it was fate. I felt it; I'm pretty sure he felt it and still does. So when you fall in love in this way and realize the obstacles will most likely keep you from doing the normal thing when you fall in love, yet you are still in love, and it will not leave, well then, you either find a way to live with how it is and be happy, or end it and be miserable for the rest of your life.

This September marks a year we have loved each other, and I do believe we have finally made it to the point of being comfortable with all the things that have presented themselves as being problems for us. I believe that I have gotten just what I always wanted; A Fairy-tale. Though not typical, when you think about it, no movie or book fairy-tale is typical, and isn’t that the kind of fairy-tale we all want? One which is such an epic that you starve for it, that you can’t live without it? Anyway, I’m comfortable with this unconventional type of love now, and in that weird way, I love all the things that this love has put me through. I know one day he will find someone new who he can make a life with, but is it strange that I will be happy for him? I don’t think so, because like my poem states, we will stay somewhere within each other's hearts always. This love is a fairy-tale. This love is called unconditional.

Unconditional Love

Complicated but simple

if that makes sense…

It’s a love that transcends

through ignorance.


And that’s not all this

love can do; it can love

without worry of being

used.


See…it is not a matter

of if we stay together,

this love understands

that it just doesn’t

matter.


Even if we end up with

other people, this love

that he and I have will

stay in both of our hearts

beyond forever.


Yes…this kind of love is

hard to explain, because

it can never stay mad or

stake a claim.


It allows us to be there

for one another if needed.

And fills our lives

with understanding

and freedom.

Part 2: There Will Always Be More Chapters to an Undying Love

However, it is a little sad

that we cannot make

a commitment, but

then again, I don’t

think that type of

love would fit us.


It is special beyond

words and worlds.

It’s like a rare pearl

lost on the seashore.


Buried far beneath

the pure white sand,

never to be touched

by deceptive hands.


This love is blessed by

God himself, if no one

else sees this, I will

protest.


In our dreams is where

we meet. Our dreams

connect us through

time and space.


There will come a

day that we will meet.

That’s where we will

finally live as one

for eternity.

I mean, what other song could I pick... Epic!

      It is pure aviannovice, because it's not promised and doesn't have to be. I'm not sure I can truly explain it. I've really never experienced this type of love before. It's love even when it's mad, it's love that will not leave. It's love that can't be damaged by a normal commitment. It has its own type of commitment. I feel totally weird describing it at times, but also, I feel totally amazed when I realize the type of love it is. I don't know...maybe more have had an unconditional love, but were thrown off by societies view of what love is and lost the meaning altogether. On the other hand, maybe it's just how my crazy romantic mind works. :)

      Thank you for the lovely comment. :)

      This sounds like the purest love imaginable. Not all people can find that. You have found a love on a different level, so embrace it for what it is--as rare and pure as the driven snow.

      Yes, we very well could be soul mates, as I believe a soul mate is two people that share a deeper connection than just the love factor. I feel a soul mate could even be a best friend. It certainly fits the title of an unconditional love. I hope he, and I stay friends forever. I would miss talking to him on the level we bond at now.

      Thank you again, MizBejabbers.

      This sounds like a story of soul mates. A soul mate love would be unconditional. A beautiful hub with a beautiful story. Such a sweet poem.

      So true swalia, that's why I say it is unconditional, because I have no expectations for this one. I don't have to be married. I know we have a lot of differences that would sway that from happening anyway. It's just kind of; it is what it is, and you have to accept it for that and be joyful until it has to end, and then just be happy because it happened, and you get to carry it in your heart forever. It's really a special feeling.

      Thanks for stopping by and reading my poem. :)

      Unconditional love is rare to find simply because we have so many expectations in love and when those expectations are not fulfilled, it results in heartbreak.

      Loved your poem!

      Love is certainly divine Faith. I think this unique type of love suits me better now at this age. I do still think, at times, that I would want a marriage, but then I remember how hard I tried to make it work when I was engaged in those long relationships, which time and again left me alone with great feelings of defeat to battle through. I just don't think that I would like marriage now. I almost feel really sad saying that, but it's true in so many ways.

      Thanks for commenting on this poem Faith. Love and blessings to you and yours!

      Thank you for sharing of your beautiful love story, Missy. Love is a funny, yet glorious thing to experience, and we all have our own unique love story to tell. It certainly would be boring if we all had the same love story! There are so many different types of love and to experience different kinds of love in this life is a special blessing of course. I know that friendship is certainly a special kind of love, as I do understand.

      You're right about the marriage that endures through the good, the bad and the ugly, and not giving into just getting that easy divorce. That's not what love is about, throwing in the towel when things get a bit not so nice. Those who do throw in the towel early on, truly do not know what they are missing in those latter years of marriage after you have been through anything and everything together and you are still together ...now that is love.

      Love is divine, period!

      Haha! You never know! But on the other hand I am coming from a culture in which poetry is the meaning of life. That's why I prefer poetry of the post WW2 theme and prior. I will be here though to read yours from time to time.

      Hi Missy, this is a great hub and I love your poem. It is very true a lot of people have this type of love. Your poem is good because it is easy to understand.

      I never understood why Rose couldn't just move over and make room for Jack on the floating door. There was plenty of room for both! So I take their love with a grain of salt. Ha! Love happens when you least expect it, it is not about seek and you will find, that just never works out well. Loved the story, poem and music and Titanic is one of my Top Five favorite movies :)

      I am so pleased that you got this poem John (Jodah). I wasn't sure it would come across well, so thank you very much. :)

      It is a very unique type of love. I can't say I've experienced this type before. It just is what it is and it's so freeing that way.

      I think I finally know what unconditional love means. Well, of course, besides the way I feel about my children. It's just two types of unconditional. :) it's great!

      Missy, this is a beautiful love story. Who says love has to be conditional and follow set guidelines? Embrace that it is unconditional and full of surprise. with the Internet connecting the world it is possible to love from afar, and you can often get to know a person on a deeper and different level than you would in person. One type of love doesn't fit all...embrace the one you have. Wonderful poetry as always, and thank you for sharing this personal story.
