All You Need is Love- Conversations With Love

Nothing you can make that can’t be made
No one you can save that can’t be saved
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time
It’s easy

All you need is love

“And they all lived happily ever after.” The golden haired girls first realisation of love came from fairy tales like most little girls. A beautiful princess rescued by a prince and true loves first kiss forever and ever. What the golden haired girl would come to know is that sometimes there is no princess or prince or even true loves first kiss but loving someone is rescuing them and being loved is being rescued again and again. Real life love the golden haired girl would come to know was not always romantic, sometimes it was messy and sometimes it was sad but still it was love.

Love is all you need.

There is a photo of the golden haired girl aged no more than 2 arms around her mother with a smile on her face of pure contentment.

All you need is love.

A family holiday to a coastal town….the only family holiday they’ll have. A motel with a swimming pool but to them it might as well have been the Hilton. Looking for kangaroos at sunset.

Love is all you need.

Sitting around the glass dining table while a tired and sad mother tries to explain palliative care to a 9 year old golden haired girl.

All you need is love.

A 17 year old golden haired girl suffering from first heartbreak being held by her normally non affectionate sister as she sobs her heart out.

Love is all you need.

Phone call after phone call of giggly happiness about saying yes and wearing a ring on a certain finger.

All you need is love.

The golden haired woman curled up in bed in a ball unable to move or think or speak, sadness beyond words. The fella lays behind her his body wrapped around hers no words spoken but his tears fall like hers silent. Crying for the baby that wasn’t meant to be.

Love is all you need.

A pugalier chasing her squeaky toy running from her new mummy to her new daddy revelling in the attention while her parents laugh freely and openly, this is family.

All you need is love
All you need is love
All you need is love, love
Love is all you need
