The Story of Love

Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feeling lived; Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all others including Love. One day it was announced to all 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 until the last possible moment.

When the island was almost 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 gold and silver on my boat and there would be no room for you." Then Love decided to ask Vanity for help who was passing by 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'll 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?", Love asked. Knowledge smiled and with deep wisdom and sincerely, answered, "Because only Time is capable of understanding how great Love is."

@Ritz: Love is always patient. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offence and is not resentful.
