The color amaranthine came from the Greek word ‘amarantos’ which meant unfading. The word Amaranth was used to name an imaginary, undying flower that was, presumably, a deep red-purple color and there you have the two uses of the word today. Lovely stuff.
I look forward to the day when this is said to me and they truly, actually mean it, with their heart and soul. I will feel it and know it to be true, I will know this is not just something they trot out, for whatever reason. I will know, and they will know that we are meant to and want to be together.
