someone posted it for us in another forum and told us he's changed the original story alittle in order to sound nicer. Now the question is who wrote this in its original form?

Understanding Of True Love

Once upon a Time, there was an island where all the feelings lived:
Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others including Love.

One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink,
so all prepared their boats and left. Love was the only one who stayed.

Love wanted to persevere until the last possible moment. When the
island was almost sinking, Love decided to plead for help.

Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat.
Love said, "Richness, can you take me with you?"
Richness answered, "No, I can't. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you."

Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a
beautiful vessel, "Vanity, please help me"
"I can't help you, Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat," Vanity answered.

Sadness was close by and Love was breaking up and said,
"Sadness let me go with you."
“Oh...Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself"

Happiness passed by Love too, but she was so happy that she did
not even hear when Love called her!

Suddenly, there was a voice,
"Come Love, I will take you" It was an elder. Love felt so blessed and
overjoyed that he even forgot to ask the elder her name. When they
arrived at dry land, the elder went her own way.

Love, realizing how much he owed the elder, asked Knowledge who was
another elder, "Who helped me?"

"It was Time," Knowledge answered.
"Time?" asked Love. "But why did Time help me?"
Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, "Because only
Time is capable of understanding how great Love is."
