Humans do this weird thing when we meet someone that we truly connect with and it’s called love. We treat love very passionately as there are many works of art, literature, films, and music that speaks about the subject of love. It’s a highly relatable topic as well because most of us experience it. When we see these pieces about the experiences of love love, we sometimes compare it to our own experiences. I myself have compared my relationship with my girlfriend to two of Shakespeare’s most well-known sonnets, “Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer’s Day” and “Let me Not to the Marriage of True Minds.” In Shakespeare’s sonnet, “Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer’s Day,” he asks himself if he should compare his mistress to a summer’s day.

We have changed dramatically over the years that we have been together, however we are still together and going strong. We have had many obstacles during the beginning of our relationship. I was new to being in a relationship, so I did many things that I later regret doing. In addition to that, we were in a long distance relationship at the time so that did not make the situation any easier. However, we managed to stay strong and happily made it out of that era of our relationship. Our love was unbreakable. As I said in the previous paragraph, I want her beauty and her love to live on until the end of time
