A NOTE TO YOUNG LOVERS --- T.H.E. MOON

Love is something that never dies.
Love is always there, never uncertain.
Love is not only loving but being loved.
For if you feel you are being loved, your love becomes stronger.
And in becoming stronger, it grows until it consumes your whole life.
And your love should be your whole life.
One should never say "I once loved you."
Because love is never a one time affair.
Only physical love is such the case, not true love.
True love is always there, never uncertain.
If you have been "shot down" as the saying goes.
Thank God that you are alive and not dead.
For such a love was not true.
And in not being true it would never have lasted.
If it leaves you sad and with memories,
If it makes you uncertain of the future,
If it seems as if the end of the world is near,
You must live each day to its fullest extent.
Hoping that the pain goes away,
Wishing that the memories leave you,
Praying that your true love will feel as strong, if not stronger in loving you.
Love is something that you never want to shut your heart to.
For if you shut your heart to love, you shut your eyes to life.
And in shutting your heart to love you become a plant,
And not the supreme creature God intended you to be.

This is from a poster I had as a teenager. It was felt and illuminated under a black light.  So many memories there!!!  When the poster became to old to keep any longer, I typed up the contents on a type writer and still have that yellowed sheet. I have tried to locate it on the internet and in the library with no success, mainly to discover if the author is imaginary of actual initials.  If anyone has any further information on this I would love to be updated. Hope you enjoy.
