Different Meanings of Love
Pilu'el Ksalsuti'l

My foremost love is to love God. God is always there for everybody at all times.

Mawi espi ksalsuti'l na wjit Niskam. Niskam na eyk wjit msit mimajuinuk.

My natural love is to love myself. I have to love myself in order to love anyone else.

Ksalsuti wjit nin ksalsin. Miamuj ksalsi nin ke'sk mu pilu'ey wen kisi ksala'q.

My precious love is the love that I have for my parents. These two peopel are the main purpose of who I am today.

My genuine love is for my brothers, these guys are my best friends and my heroes in my life.

My fun love is for my friends. My friends accept me for who I am and are always there to laugh and cry with.

Wljewiaq ksalsuti wjit nitapk. Nitapk keslijik wjit tan wen nin. Nitapk eykik tanjiw weltasi, kisna tanjiw atkitemi.

My future love, which will be a thrilling love, for my future spouse. Someday when I meet the right person, I hope I will be able to share my future love, the way my parents share their love, warm, loving and caring love from the heart.
