Love Is Nothing But Emptiness! - Poem by Surayya Abbas

I can see
The shining beauty of love
In my mother's soothing smile.
I can see
The brightness of love
In black pretty eyes
Of my daughter.
I can see
The feelings of love
Reveal on me
By my life partner.
I can see
The gesture of love
Shown to me
By my siblings.
And all this reminds me of
Early days of my life
When I was young
And I could see
The colors of love everywhere
From people to things
In all that I knew.
Though, with all the lovable compendium
I still feel the worldly love
Is nothing but emptiness
And now I realize that
True love is the love of God
Beyond and infinite.........

    sometime i think, all of worldly loves are metaphorical and these love practices evolve into God's love. we see, sufi poets used symbolic characters male female to disclose the LOVE.
    however, your wording fine!

    S ure love is but an embodiment
    u nsure of it but its there
    r aise up the love
    a s something sublime
    y es its God so divine
    y et human are refine
    a true love for man is the same as that with GOD!
