5. Love is – Understanding! [On Love a collection of Poems]


Love is understanding.
It is understanding the words unspoken
Held back behind a veil of silence,
It is understanding the hurt
Hidden beneath self-defiance,
It is understanding the joy felt
On hearing your achievements
It is understanding the longing
The loneliness, the pain endured.
For, when you really understand
The reasons behind the tears and fears
The motives and the dreams,
The thought behind the actions,
The restrictions which influence
And the desire of the Soul,
You can say, “I know, I understand.”
Its enough if you understand
For when you truly understand
You can forgive anything, accept everything
- You can truly love!
