People say they know the meaning of life, that they know what it means to truly live. I would not claim to KNOW what the meaning of life is, but I would like to think I found a way wroth living.Rated: Fiction K - English - Romance/Poetry - Words: 258 - Published: 07-03-12 - Status: Complete - id: 3038599

I was once asked, "How does one measure someone's life." By the time they've spent on earth? The number of smiles that they have caused? At the time didn't have a clue, but now I do. Life cannot be measured by the amount of breaths you take or the number of times your heart beats. It is measured in the time spend with someone you love, because that is the only time you are truly alive, and your hearts may beat when they're apart but they are calling, calling to the world for the one that they love. And all this time I thought that life was there so we could leave our mark on the world, some loud statement to be recalled over time as great. I couldn't have been more wrong, nor could I have been happier to have been wrong. Because it is not the impression you make on the world but onto another person, not some loud statement but a whisper in their ear. A person who they love, and cannot find the words to describe how they feel, because all of the world can talk, and it never shuts up, life is spent trying to find that moment in your life where you can quite your mind and speak, not with your mouth but with your heart. And I can think of no better moment that I would rather live in. A moment where through not word, but heart, I can tell you "I Love you"
