So tell me what is love to you, my friend!
Is it the means to justify an end
or laying claim to a person’s limbs and soul?
Is it a transient gratification
of our senses, the kind we have in life,
like eating delicacies, warm and bright,
though all the glitters and aromas too
are for the first three inches of our tongue?
That’s the most our senses can penetrate,
three inches, never more, beyond that the rest,
can be felt alone, be it taste or touch,
by the sacred spirit that is eternal!
So, have you ever thought why a Higher power,
kindly made this universe from a speck of light?
It is for love too my friend, an urge to express,
to be fully understood, cherished and be praised!
Love truly is – like the Sun, burning itself to
cater for and sustain all kinds of life below;
like an ocean that in silence beneath the Sun
sacrifices its brine sorrows eternally
and fills the infant clouds with sweet droplets of rain;
like the clouds that shed their sweetness onto the ground,
to turn the arid desert lush and green again;
like the air we breathe, in abundance all around!
The way we are cared for in silence from above,
in the end, know this my friend, only that is Love!
