However, the “but” eliminates the “I love you.” There are no “buts,” “ifs,” or “whens” in love. It’s always there, without fail. No start and no finish. It is the heart’s conditionless state. Not a fleeting emotion that changes depending on how you’re feeling. It is there in our hearts, a portion of our hearts that finally grafts itself into every bodily limb and cell. Our behavior, speech, and brain are all altered by love. Until the day of our death, love remains in our spirit and fills us with its presence every day.
