What Is Love? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? - Poem by Grace Hays

i know strange to ask this question
but everytime i think i know the answer
i find out that i am wrong to mention
how i feel for you cuz you're so much shallower
i don't know if i'll ever understand
but i wonder if someone can please tell me
what is love and how to withstand
this pain in my heart that is causing me to wilt
i wonder constantly if i will ever find the one
that is so special that can give me love
a love to last a lifetime
and can keep me safe from most of my pain
someone that will care about the real me
and not what they want me to be
oh can someone please tell me
what is love
what is that feeling everyone calls love
does it always leave you in pain
constantly torturing you until all you want
is that special one in your life
to hold you close and dry your tears
ease your pain and relieve your fears
oh bother.........why do i try to understand on my own
oh someone please tell me
what is love

    Love can take many forms. It isn't ever the same. One person's opinion of love is not quite the same as another. Sometimes you love someone with all your heart...everything inside of you. It's hard when you give them all of you, everything, and they choose to crush it. That is probably the most incredible sorrow of all, the feeling of being abandoned and betrayed by the one you TRULY loved. It's difficult to rise above such pain and heartache, but everyday we strive to find a whisper of love within all the tears and the endless ache. Sometimes thats all you can do... besides hope. The loss of hope can be like the loss of everything. Keep hoping, Grace. Love hasn't eluded you... Your broken heart will very slowly heal, although scars can be so deep. Give yourself time to heal and be gentle with your own heart. Lesa (Report) Reply

    Yes Grace love can feel like you have explained but that is a one sided love. When one misses and the other is gone. True love shall enter when you are unaware, and you allow yourself the time to heal over the one that is not near.
    Just an opinion. Take care dear and release the old and the new shall find you.
    Hugs to you
