“It comes and goes in waves” can be said of the love that enters your life and forever changes you. There is much merit in learning how to wait for love as neither the feeling of love nor the beloved can constantly be present. Waiting can be challenging and wonderful since you are constantly craving your companion. The waiting for love quotes mentioned above can give you company and help you realize the sweet ache of distance and momentary separation. What makes life so beautiful is that you treasure it, even more when you eventually find love. Instead of begrudging times spent away from each, try to embrace the yearning with an open heart and complete devotion.
