A love letter

Do you know, a simple love letter
To people how does it matter?
You can write many words to express it
You can write only those three letters…

Some waits to receive it for years…
Tears of pleasure flow when they receive…
For some love letters bring fears…
For many it brings nothing but sorrow and grief…

Letters of love not always brings love
If love is not pure and true
Though it is very easy to present
A letter to someone penning “I love you”…

    Pure love letter is the letter where the writer open up mind openly!

    I am yet to meet my fiance after 50 years of love. My destiny is that I shall never meet her again even I live for 100 years.But how can I forget her. I am the creation of God's love.I live in love.I shall die in love. (Report) Reply

    Words are not enough to express love. Sounds are not good for love.Deep silence and emptiness are the abode of love.
    ` Be on the peak of a mountain
    to feel what is love
    Be on the shore of a sea
    to feel what is love.
    Listen the groaning of sea
    Weeping of mountain. (Report) Reply

The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
