Fading Love

1 Comment

I believe to some point that the love in a relationship can fade, but it takes time for it to happen and also a lack of interest for the relationship. Relationships don’t always work out the way you want them to and all though you put all your time and effort to make something work, if the second person doesn’t do the same the relationship is doomed to failure. In my personal viewing i think that passion never fades, but we stop looking for it or forget how to find it. In other word it not faded but hidden. My grandparents were always so passionate in their relationship and everyone could see it. in the last couple of years the vibe around them was different, we wouldn’t see my grandfather arriving with flowers or my grandmothers favorite drink. he would get home and sit on the table waiting for food. my grandmother would try being affectionate and humorous around him but he would never give in. This went on for a time until my grandmother decided a divorce was best. My grandmother never stopped feeling the passion of the relationship she was trying to make it work but the effort was to much for only her to handle. It may be considered to be an age thing, because they are a little old but that is just crazy talk for me. Just recently my grandfather has been trying to gain my grandmothers love back, now he knows where the passion was and is doing his part of the effort to make it work. My grandmother never lost her feeling for him, he is after all “her true love” as she says. Seeing my grandparents relationship made me realize that love is passionate and if the love is true the passion never fades. Passion gets hidden away but only if you let it hide.
