I believe you always have one true love. It might be your high school sweet heart, an old ex; you’re ex husband, your new and improved husband. No matter what the situation is at the time or what it was back then for some reason that special person you fell in love with, deep inside your heart he/she will be your one true love.

I’m a 15 year old young lady and in my life so far I have been threw a lot of different feelings of confusion. When I was about 5 years old my Grandpa past away and my Grandma went threw some sorrow years and sometimes I ask her, will you ever want to remarry someone else? Her answer is always NO. She tells me the reason why is because, “your grandpa has been my only true love and it will always be that way”. So I see how love can take over people’s feelings and the way of thinking. My Grandma has been a widow for 10 years and still she has stayed faithful to the love they had. So I see that my Grandma has had one true love her whole life.

I also look at my moms past years with her and my dad and the years that they used to have together. In my point of view I always thought they both had the greatest mirage ever, and I wanted to have the kind of mirage they both had because all they would do is talk about how much they loved each other and how they were going to be together their whole life ‘till death do them apart. But now they are divorced but still I ask my mom, “Do you still love my dad?” She tells me she will always love him no matter what because she has formed a family from the love they had. I also ask my dad “Do you still love my mom?” He answers me “im always going to love your mom because the love me and your mom had, im never going to have the same with some one else”. So later on in my future I hope I meet someone and I have my one true love, and create a family from the love we both will have. IN ONE TRUE LOVE, this I beleive.
