The Meaning of Love


At first love makes you blind,
But in the end it teaches you to see.
What is the meaning of love?
It will not be what you expected.

At first love makes you a fool,
But in the end it will make you wise.
What is the meaning of love?
Love is a mystery.

At first love makes you crazy
But in the end it will make you sane.
What is the meaning of love?
Love is not what it appears to be.

At first love makes you a slave.
But in the end it will set you free.
What is the meaning of love?
Love is a contradiction.

At first love makes you confused
But in the end it will make you understand.
What is the meaning of love?
Love is a voyage of discovery.

At first love makes you forget who you are.
But in the end it will teach you who you can be.
What is the meaning of love?
The answer is not easy to see.

At first love will hurt your heart’
But in the end it will heal your soul.
What is the meaning of lone?
Love is a work in progress.
