What Would You Give?

Would you give everything you have if it meant experiencing that one perfect kiss?

Would you take the chance and leave your comfortable world, if it meant being near the love of your life?

Would you brave the fire of hell, if it meant seeing them smile?

Would you walk a thousand miles, if it meant standing by their side?

Would you accept a broken heart, if it meant loving them once?

Is there a sacrifice too great, too big or too much that would stop you from being in their presence?

What would you give?

This is a lovely post, and most profound and thought provoking....the comments should be interesting.

However, where I am at emotionally in my life, I just cannot even contemplate questions like these; they just make me sad.

Seeing as how I feel as though I'm constantly on the outside looking in, watching others live while I just watch time pass, I'm certain I'd be willing to march into hell for a heavenly cause. Oh, and in HornyViking's journal he mentioned having to dedicate a blog post to you. Since I'm not as good a writer as him, you might just have to settle for accepting this invite. Me? oh, sorry allow me to introduce myself... [post 200896] I just wanted to invite you out to HornyViking's place for the [post 200875] weekend.There's going to be hot sex, childish pranks, buckets of blood ("That's pronuonced, 'Boo-kay'"),, and a psychokiller, who'd be pretty cool if only he could get laid.Do ya'll like my pic? come on over! let's make evil!

I would give my life. And I do give it every day for that kiss and smile from my husband. I have left my comfortable world, and traveled thousands of miles to live with him overseas, more than once. I have had my heart broken, and still love him. I have sacrificed friends, loved ones, walked through his fires of hell, even if they are only in his mind. And when he gives me that one perfect kiss......there is no place on earth that I would rather be.

I am such a believer in love, that I have pulled up my roots, gone to hell and back, given up all luxuries, and laid my soul bare & naked out in the open to suffer ugly attacks upon my character by evil persons...for love.
I have done this, and I would do more, whatever it took, to be with someone that I deeply loved.
Nothing else matters.

Everything for him if needed, except my children that bond can't be broken nor would he ever ask that of me. Some people are worth it they come into our lives and you know that you will be forever changed, there is no going back.

In my heart.... I would say yes to all and I would give everything.

Realistically....give up everything for a perfect kiss...no, leave my comfortable world (such as it stands right now)...to be near the love of my life...no...unless I was also the love of his life. Braving the fire of hell...., walking a thousand miles. Probably not...I would accept a broken heart if it meant loving them once. Sacrifices...yes and no. I would give everything....but only if he would too. I've had unconditional love once in my life....and would love for it to happen again....but that and the return of it would be the only way I would sacrifice anything.

~~~ Just me, poppin to say HI! ~~

You have to don't you? If you have found someone that amazing that rocks your world just by being in it, then there is nothing you wouldn't do right? Cos I sure as heck am not going to be sitting in some rocking chair at 80 years old, looking back on my life and regretting not taking the chance to maybe, just maybe, rock their world back.

Would you give everything you have if it meant experiencing that one perfect kiss?
In a materialistic sense, yes!

Would you take the chance and leave your comfortable world, if it meant being near the love of your life?
I would absolutely leave my comfortable world if I could be near the one I've dreamed of and everything that entails.

Would you brave the fire of hell, if it meant seeing them smile?
I would NOT brave the fire of hell. That place scares me!

Would you walk a thousand miles, if it meant standing by their side?
I would crawl a thousand miles if that's what it took to find my one true love.

Would you accept a broken heart, if it meant loving them once?
Garth Brooks sums it up w/ this lyric: I could have missed the pain but I'd of had to miss the dance. I would accept a broken heart if I could just be w/ her for a split second. In the city of Angels, he said he would've done it all again just for a smell of her hair.

Is there a sacrifice too great, too big or too much that would stop you from being in their presence?
I wouldn't want to hurt others in the process.

What would you give?
I would give everything I currently have to be with her.

read aascromptin replies..
change the her to him..
and make believe I wrote it.

know in the meantime that i believe that we make
our own heaven and hell right here on earth and
we have much to say about what shows up in our lives.

love really is all there is after
everything has been stripped away!

Just a little food for thought.............
If you really want to be happy, nobody can stop you...

That one perfect kiss might convince you to do all of the following, believe me....for it did me. I did leave my comfortable world, I have traveled for days, and I'm still walking through hell to be with him, but the sacrifices I have made have been worth it. Ask me if I'd do it again and the answer would be yes. I once asked my love if he knew it wouldn't work out, or that we'd only be together for a very short time, would he risk it anyhow. His answer was no, mine was yes. So perhaps not everyone is willing to take the chance. I think that is a very sad thing, for they will never know what might have been. I honestly believe love is worth giving everything for.

Would you give everything you have if it meant experiencing that one perfect kiss?

**I've already had perfect kisses, and as good as they are, they aren't worth everything.

Would you take the chance and leave your comfortable world, if it meant being near the love of your life?

** I have, I did, and I would in a heartbeat.

Would you brave the fire of hell, if it meant seeing them smile?

**Yes. (but I don't believe in hell, unless it's one here)

Would you walk a thousand miles, if it meant standing by their side?

** Yes.

Would you accept a broken heart, if it meant loving them once?

**I have, I did and I will again.

Is there a sacrifice too great, too big or too much that would stop you from being in their presence?

** As others have said...only my children.

What would you give?

**Everything that I am without a second thought.

I am going to post this first, then read everyone else's replies that are already here... I don't want them to influence/change what I say or am thinking right now....

I would, literally, give it all... anything I had to do (that was legal and did not involve giving up my child) for a love such as you have described... which I have only had once in my lifetime. I am talking about real love here... wild, crazy passionate, deep, intense, mind blowing love - not lust, not infatuation.

I think this kind of love... it's so rare... to deny it is foolhardy and destined to make anyone miserable ... maybe forever after.

Apparently the depth of depravity here is bottomless... don't you feel right at home?

Would you give everything you have if it meant experiencing that one perfect kiss? NO ... job, kids, friends ...NOPE

Would you take the chance and leave your comfortable world, if it meant being near the love of your life? again ... kids change everything .. more important than my own life so more important than the love of my life

Would you brave the fire of hell, if it meant seeing them smile?
Yes I think so .. fire and ice

Would you walk a thousand miles, if it meant standing by their side?
1400 miles at least but I'd fly

Would you accept a broken heart, if it meant loving them once?
I wish the answer were yes but probably no. Not strong enough. Some games are harder as you get older

Is there a sacrifice too great, too big or too much that would stop you from being in their presence? Sorry to be repetitive but 2 beautiful children anchor my soul, well more importantly ny body

What would you give?
THAT is the question. In the REAL world, we must make trade-offs and not be overly, simplistically romantic ... I wish it were so easy .. really do ...

GREAT questions .... And to those that can do anything, everything for a kiss, smile, love .. hats off....

Very thought provoking...


Would you give everything you have if it meant experiencing that one perfect kiss?

For a kiss? No. I'd only walk away from my commitments if it meant enduring happiness or if it was a worthwhile, more selfless sacrifice. Anything purely physical is fleeting.

Would you take the chance and leave your comfortable world, if it meant being near the love of your life?

Although it's incredibly scary, I will be doing just that in six months (*gulp*) Yikes!

Would you brave the fire of hell, if it meant seeing them smile?
Yes.

Would you walk a thousand miles, if it meant standing by their side?
1000 miles is too close.

Would you accept a broken heart, if it meant loving them once?
Yes. You have to take a chance. Time heals all wounds, but if you never took that chance, you would be haunted for the rest of your life with "what if?"

Is there a sacrifice too great, too big or too much that would stop you from being in their presence?

I don't have children... but I would never sacrifice their wellbeing. I don't have anything to sacrifice but myself... I'd stop short at sacrificing my sanity and my self-worth. But other than that... there is no material posession, no trasient state of difficulty that could prevent me with being with the man I love.

What would you give?

My whole heart. My whole hope. My career. Wealth. Being near my family. Being near my friends. My posessions. My security. My comfort. My freedom. My plans... Faced with the shadow of an empty life and a lonely soul, these things don't matter as much, or are discomforts that can be assuaged.

Alright, I am seeing ALOT of BS answers here. IT amazes me that people would give away their entire identity, who they are, what they where and who they may become for a one true love. Or so they say they would. I woudl be willing to do many many things for my love, but give up who I am is out of the question. If you gave up who you were, would that one true love still be willing to be with you, highly doubtful. Why, because they fell in love with who you are.

Love is not giving everything up for the person you love, or doing monumental things for them. Love is being who you are as is, and that person still loving you in return. You cannot guage love by these things, love is in the heart, and love is in the small things. So lets ask these questions.

Would you give up your afternoon so that your loved one could rest?

Would you watch the kids for a few hours so your loved one could sleep a few extra hours after a long week?

Would you take care of your loved one while they are ill, even if it makes you ill?

Would you let your loved one have the better seat on an airplane?

Ok, anyways.
It seems like many of you watch too much television or movies. Love has boundaries. Would you kill a perfectly innocent child for your one true love? As I said before, I am simply amazed by soem of these answers, and it makes me wonder. Are you all being honest, not only with us, but to yourself? People who said they woudl go to hell for their loved one probably don't know what Hell really is. And probably watched "What Dreams May Come" one too many times.

Sorry this is a bit long winded, and I am not trying to be mean to any of you, or chastise you or even lecture you. But atleast be honest with yourself.

BANG! POW! BOOM! a study in useless knowledge and sick humor!
I want a damn soundtrack to my blog!

Or perhaps...if you put a totally different spin on this the answers would make more sense - I appreciated Slide's answers...if this type of love is not recipocated then you've held on to something that was just a dream. And so...for Trav the romantic, and for Val the sensible cynic - I can totally and without reservation tell you that there are two...only two...humans that would have this hold over my heart...my kids.

Would you give everything you have if it meant experiencing that one perfect kiss?

**Is there a kiss more perfect than that first kiss when you hold your newborn child and look into the eyes of wonder? So yes...if it meant giving up everything for that moment - I would, to bring such beauty into this world.

Would you take the chance and leave your comfortable world, if it meant being near the love of your life?

** Again...if they needed me - physically, mentally or emotionally. Yes. I would.

Would you brave the fire of hell, if it meant seeing them smile?

**Suppose, as so many parents have had to live through, my child was in an accident and laying helpless in a coma...would I brave hell? I would brave the Devil himself - if it meant eliciting a smile, a nod, a squeeze or any other sign of life from my child.

Would you walk a thousand miles, if it meant standing by their side?

** Without a second thought. Strap on the backback, tie up the sneakers and hit the road running.

Would you accept a broken heart, if it meant loving them once?

**Is there any parent anywhere whose heart has not been broken over and over again, at first when you realize you cannot stop every hurt they have to endure, you cannot fix every mistake they make and you have to stand aside and let them live their own consequences. Broken hearts are common when you raise a child - but they never overshadow the joy.

Is there a sacrifice too great, too big or too much that would stop you from being in their presence?

** NO. If they needed me. Nothing could stop me.

This I can answer honestly.

I make mistakes, I am out of control & at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. ~Marilyn

bulging_boy 49M

1/13/2006 7:19 pm

My answers are pretty much the same as Blondes,

A kiss isn't enough to lose everything for. A transient 5 seconds... 10... 20? Nup.

Anything that would allow me a lifetime with the person I loved I would sacrifice for. Anything that would allow the protection of the one I loved I would sacrifice for.

The most amazing thing for me is to be on the recieving end of this as it crystalises into reality. From a thought... to a hope to a dream to reality.

To have so much cast aside for her to be with me is truly humbling... although with the exception of the kids... I would do the same to be with her.

funny thing is... those things she is willing to sacrifice will be returned to her with interest.

at first when I read vals post, it upset me, becuase I have given up me for my children and husband, they still love me for me, it was a sacrafice I choose to make. Then I answered yes to all of his questions, and then I read impish pixie's responses and agreed with her and then went back and read val's again, then Travs again, still the answer was yes.

I have two sisters who think I am crazy because I gave up me the person I was and wanted to be for the love of my children and husband. They were my saving grace, they saved me, and to them I owe my life. So I can honestly say with out hesitation, Yes VAL I would do each and everyone of your questions as well as TRAV's

Dang good point you make there VAL, thanks for asking thanks for making me truly take a step back and re-read all these questions

hugs and smiles

It's unimportant what you say you will do for love... the only answer is what have you done and given up for love?
I've already gone the distance.. laid myself in front of the train.. picked up the shards of my heart.. and I breathlessly await the chance to do it all again... Fool?.. of course!
And, who needs romantic novels when this blogverse exists?
Good stuff... are you in Texas again?

Ok-yes I would and have taken care of loved ones while they are ill-even terminally.One passed on two years ago- I stopped working to help out his last 6 years.
I have done all the unselfish things.
In reality-yes for my kid-I would give up my life for him- what Mom wouldn't?Now money and things-I have them-they can all be replaced-they don't mean so much.They don't buy happiness.
I do like the Garth Brooks song- always have-The Dance.
Now-to fall in love that passionately-yeah-I'd most likely be a fool and drop everything for a man that did me like that-but I would think there would be a mutual respect- a love in return- for my happiness- so we would work things out together-not just one sided.He would see and respect my love for my kid and he would know he has the biggest part of me forever-my very soul so he would never have to worry about that.Actually he would love that part of me that he sees caring so much for my son.
To love like that-to be so in love that you want no other- you admire him-you love the tiniest little things about him-the way he smells-the way he looks at you-the way he annoys you then makes you smile- until your last breath- or his-yeah-I want that kind of love-the kind that goes on even after the person has left this world.
Mind you-people will have some imperfections,and will get on your last nerve-but you will love them- that kind of love does and can exist-I have seen it.
This is good therapy-might be better than jogging for me!
