I have a brother who is married.
I have a friend who has a girlfriend.
I have friends who have lovers or are getting married or are married.
I feel like an odd man out sometimes. I feel like I don't have a love.
I have a sister-in-law, friends I call my 'sister', and friends I love to death, but they are just friends.
I have a best friend, good friends, or people I respect, or people I have not seen before.
I am a listener, I don't pose judgement regardless of past, and I am respectful.
So, out of all that, I have one question, "Do I Have a Love?"
Do I have a love I can call my own, a love I can marry, have kids, and can love forever.
I hope so, I sure hope so.
