What Love Is

Do you really know what love is?
Do you Love because you need someone?
Do you love when that person is rich?
Do you love when that person is beautiful?
Do you love just because that person is useful to you?

Love for that is just by mere word
Love like that doesn't mean anything at all...

I love you because you are handsome
I love you because you are pretty
I love you because you are smart
I love you because you are wealthy...

That is not love at all
That is just using other people
You don't love that person
You just love yourself..

If that person is not attractive
Will you still love that being?
If that persone is not that smart
Do you forget everything about that person?
If the person is now poor
Will you accept that being with open arms?

That is not love at all
That is using
That is just love
No love in the air...

I love you even though you hate me
I love you even though you are not attractive
I love you even though you are not wealthy

That is love
Accepting everything about that person
Not accepting his/her wrong doings
But just caring for that person
Without asking anything in return
Now that is love..

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
