I'd go with:

Verus amor manet.

"verus amor" = "true love"

manet = "he (or she or it) waits"
" manet he stays/waits"

search strategy:
"verus amor"
"manet * waits"

I hope this helps.

I'm sorry that I gave you the impression of uncertainty.  It was
certainly unintentional.  I stand by my answer.

I checked with a latin prof... I asked him to convert verus amor manet
to an english phrase... he said, "the true love remains". Sounds great
to me... sorry about infering that you were unsure.

Only reason not a 5 out of 5 is because he seems to be a little
unsure... though it seems right to me.
