My love for you will never fade. Centuries will pass and cities will rise and fall, but my love will stand firm. Mountains will wear themselves down to speed bumps, earthquakes will crumble wide bridges like snow and my love won't even break a sweat. My love is stronger than iron, more eternal than air, my love is more dangerous than the river, my love is more subtle than the spider, my love is like the grass that spreads across the valley. My love is like the hive that sends its bees to all corners of the land. My love is fire. My love is soil. My love is moisture. My love is breath.
