What is Love?


What is Love?
That is something
I do not know,
And I do not even
Feel like I can
Understand it,
For I have never
Been able to experience it.

I have heard so many things
About love that
I do not understand what
It can mean,
But I do know the basics,
I guess,
In order to understand
The gist of what goes
On in a relationship.

In Corinthians 13,
St. Paul says that
Love is patient
And love is kind,
And that it is not
Pompous or self-centred,
But giving and desirous.

Well, that is the
Basics of Love, I guess,
In the sense that,
Yes, it is definitely
Selfless and giving
And kind and loving,
For I would even say
That that is what love is.

I guess to me,
Love is selfless,
Caring and giving,
Kind and compassionate,
Forgiving and understanding,
Merciful and infallible,
Communicative and feeling,
Emotional and relaxed,
Cooperative and helpful,
Respectful and desirous,
Passionate and fonding,
Firm and guiding,
Accepting and tolerant,
Friendly and amiable,
Reverent and God-fearing,
Open-minded and liberal,
Conservative and interdependent,
Laidback and easygoing,
Poised and unprejudiced,
Ecstatic and exciting,
Consistent and persistent,
Sporadic and spontaneous,
Loyal and reliable,
Trustworthy and honest,
Humorous and good-natured,
Happy and joyous,
And submissive
And unselfish,
And unpompous,
And not narcissistic,
And not deceiving,
And not disloyal,
And selfless beyond all else.

Love is when you
Know that the
'Special someone' you
Met will always be there
For you,
No matter if it
Is in your darkest times,
Or even in your brightest times,
And you know that you can count
On him or her.

Love is selfless,
And it is special,
But I do not know what
It is like,
Since I have not experienced
It before,
But that is okay,
For I will find out
Eventually,
Whether it will be
Sooner or later.
Because some day,
Love will find me.

In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
