What is love?
Love is looking into the soul of the other person
Always asking why
Why do they love me?
Why don’t they love me?
It is never to accuse or berate or punish.
Though there is unbearable heartbreak and sadness when
the one we adore doesn’t feel the same, it doesn’t mean
we should be able to hurt them back.
With all my heart I seek to see the heart of the one I love
To see the hurts and hidden anguish they hold inside
I don’t want to create new wounds
I want only to heal their wounds
so that my Love will leave behind
only what’s true and real
a piece of me
that will somehow, hopefully
bring a peace I was meant to bring
into the soul of the one I was meant
to meet on this journey called life
Even as they move on,
I can honestly say
that Love was and is
always worth the pain.
