What a fool I am

What a silly fool I am

And a love struck silly fool at that

In the state of being where mathematics

Makes perfect sense on paper yet translates easily

Into matters of the heart

Laugh with me here,

For it truly is a silly concept

But easy enough to see

Lay your mind for a moment on the question: What is the derivative of love?

Hmm… Indeed, what is it?

Consider for a moment

Love is constant

And the derivative of a constant is always zero.

Yet, since love grows exponentially with respect to time

We may safely assume that love is not simply a constant by itself

Rather, it is the constant multiplier of the

Exponentially increasing emotions of two lovers

Let Loverscubed represent the incresing emotions of two lovers

Love maintains a slope of zero when by its self

However, when mutiplied, we may say vicariously

This love is connected to the two lovers

Thus, it becomes also exponentially increasing

We are able through the use of derivative rules

To prove that

LoveLoverscubed = Becomes 3LoveLoverssquared = the derivative of LoveLoverscubed

And from this we see the derivative of Love and its effect on the lovers

The derivative of Love is undefined at its endpoint

An endpoint whose derivative is increasing exponentially we may recall

An endpoint which is non existent

Thus love is always increasing and always positive

Love's domain and range is (Zero, Positive Infinity)

Practical applications of this derivative equation are everywhere

It is this simple concept that allows me to give the one I love the moon

It helps me calculate the dividend of buying blue daisies

The very ones that I give to her

Simply because a woman of her beauty should never be without flowers

You may find that my concept is indeed

Founded on very strong basses in mathematics

And that my proof above

Is indeed correct

I certainly hope to have brightened your day

Because I can say with a defined certainty

That my appreciation for calculus

Just increased by a factor Love
