The Island of Feelings

Once upon a time,
There was an island where all feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Vanity, Knowledge, Richness, and Love.
Theirs was a contented existence until one day to everyone’s dismay it was discovered that the island was sinking. Everyone was told they must leave. So the feelings all prepared their boats and started leaving their beloved island.
Love was the only one that stayed, behind. Love so cared for the island home that he wanted to stay until they were sure that the island was really sinking.
When Love realized that the island was really sinking, he decided to ask for help.
Richness was passing by Love in a beautiful boat. Love said, “Richness, can you take me with you?” Richness answered,”No, I can’t. There are a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no room in here for you.”
Love decided to ask Vanity who was passing by, “ Vanity, please help me!” “ I can’t help you Love. You are all wet and will damage my boat,” Vanity answered.
Sadness was close by so Love asked for help, “Sadness, let me go with you.” “ Oh...Love, I am so sad that I can’t help anyone. I prefer to be alone!”
Happiness passed Love too. She was too happy to notice when Love called her!
Suddenly, there was a voice, “ Come Love, I will take you.” It was an elderly man.
Love became very happy that he even forgot to ask the name of the elder. When they arrived to safe grounds, Love asked Knowledge who was the elderly man.
“It was time.” “Time? But why did Time help me?”
“Because only Time is capable of understanding such a great Love.”
