The Story of Love Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello


Attraction initiates wondrous feelings
That may come at the very first encounter,
And further on with the mutual nearing
Communication would fill the gap there.

Commitment then unites the promise
A bond brings two beings to become one,
The first years are spent in utter bliss
But when struggles come, the love is undone.

Revealing of flaws, in time may surface
To test resolve in the view of changes,
And the reasons to love may be hard to trace
In the midst of storms and life's challenges.

And so as gold passes through the fire
The reasons for loving slowly become clear
Love, purified from the dross of desire-
Now shows its true meaning through the years.
