62. I Love You For What You Are - Poem by Praveen Kumar in Simply Yours

I love you for what you are,
Not for what you ought to be,
Nor for what you some day is;
You, as you are now, here and near,
Is what is dear,
What I desire;
I know you now,
That is how
I love you for all your worth
With a heart that beats and calls you
Now, hear
With a soul that drinks and shares your charm
At this very minute;
I know the past
Of what, you are a part,
What too I loved;
I know not the future
Where you may reach some day,
Nor I bother to know,
For love is just felt,
Neither assessed nor foreseen.

Love sprouts in heart and sits in soul,
Love bounces from the soul to light up loved things,
Love lights steady flame of heavenly bliss
And melts all pride and binds loved ones.

Love is pure bliss,
Love is pure feel
Of the loved ones in self and soul,
In eyes and heart,
In flesh and bone to blend to one
And discover forever dulcet wonders;
Love knows neither time nor any place,
Love transcends death;
Love only knows now,
Unending movements of now and here,
Love only knows now,
For, love is real like now and here;
Only love knows what love is -
A flood of sweet emotions
That ravages life, uproots self
To bring loved ones nearer god.
