Love is Fading

I thought I posted a picture of this years ago, but I can’t find it. Someone wrote the word “love” on each of these exposed bricks. It’s been there for many years, I’m not sure how many, but in my memory it’s at least a decade. I’ve been passing it by almost every day and I’ve grown quite attached to it. I just searched my soul for why but all I came up with it is, I like that someone exuberantly wrote that one day. Maybe they were just falling in love, maybe they were young and couldn’t wait to.

It used to be very clear, but now most of the loves are barely legible. I wish I had an earlier picture. And I wish whoever did this would come back and restore it. Don’t let love fade away completely.
