if you know that that person is dying?
This was a question asked in a movie I just recently saw. The female lead asked the male lead if he can love her knowing that she was dying and he wasn't able to answer. I myself was not able to answer it immediately.
Mulling it over, I now know what my answer would be if I were asked this question. I hope though that I will never be asked this question.
I would say yes. I would love someone even if that person was dying. I would want to spend any time that I can with that person until his last breath. After all, when we fall in love, we never really know if things will work out. Sometimes, we lose someone to someone else. Sometimes, fate intervenes. Sometimes, it just doesn't work out. Sometimes, someone steals them away from us. And if we unlucky, sometimes, death takes them away from us.
Regardless of this, I would still want to be with that person even if I know that at the end of the day, I could lose him and never see him again. I would take one breath, one kiss, one touch, one glance, one hug than to spend an eternity of never knowing what it would be like to feel those things. I would take something over nothing.
So yes, I would love someone even if I knew that they were dying. After all, what's a broken heart compared to the joy that I will feel whenever I'm with him?
