Love... for what it's worth...

by J Lau   Jan 19, 2006

Love is blind;
Love is real.
Love is unconditional;
Love is illogical.
Love have no guidelines nor boundaries;
Love have no rules nor reason.
Love cannot be measured, nor can it be defined;
Love cannot be forced, nor can it be brought.

Love leaves no room for selfishness;
Love leaves no room for disrespect.
Love asks for nothing but honesty;
Love asks for nothing but commitment.
Love comes with anticipation;
Love comes with desire.
Love shows support;
Love shows appreciation.

Love is about loyalty;
Love is about trust.
Love is about giving;
Love is about sacrifices.
Love is about the present, and it's all about forgiving;
Love is about understanding, and it's all about compromising.
Love is about sharing - the joy and laughters;
Love is about offloading - the burden and sorrows.

Love cannot be selective;
but requires acceptance of the person as a whole.
Love cannot be partial;
but requires sincerity from the bottom of your heart.
Love is surreal;
but can be painful.
Love is eternal;
but can be fragile.
Love can deepen with time;
but needs reassurance;
Love can magnify with care;
but needs attentiveness.

Love leaves no regrets,
and leaves behind a trail of memories;
Love completes the circle,
and redefines the meaning of life.
True love comes once in a lifetime,
for it will also last no less then a lifetime.
True love can only be realized when you learn
how to treasure, the one in front of you
and open up your heart... to truly feel...
LOVE... for what it's worth.

To all the lovers out there... may you ALL treasure the one you have and moments you share
To all the singles out there... may you ALL find the destined one for your heart to flare

    That's beautiful. I never thought that anyone could define the meaning of love; but now I know I was wrong. This poem, is the definition of Love. I could say you did an excellent job, but that is an understatement. There is no words, honestly, to me, to describe how great this poem is. Sorry that that sounds so cheesy, but I mean it. This is one of my favorite poem's of all time. Thank you for sharing your talent. 5/5
