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..

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
