An Ode to Love


Love is never possessive, nor is it jealous.
It does not believe in boasting about, or in irritating their partner better half.
It neither believes in getting angry nor being rude.
It bears all pain and showers happiness for other’s happiness.
Love is neither blind, nor does it believe in everything.
It is never scared, but only of being alone.
It believes in trust and care.
It is neither selfish nor stubborn.
It walks on cloud nine and dreams in the day.
It begins in a wink and stays till the last breath.

Lovely... Reminded me of a quote from the Bible..

"Love is patient; love is kind
and envies no one.
Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude;
never selfish, not quick to take offense.
There is nothing love cannot face;
There is no limit to it's faith, it's hope, and endurance.
In a word, there are three things that last forever; faith, hope and love; but the greatest of them all is love."

But... does love of this kind really exist.. I don't think so..

I doubt to whether love of this kind exists. But there is always the silver lining, and maybe one in a hundered relationships share this kind of love.

but if there's love like this, then this is a beautiful ode, nicely written & Love must be mighty pleased :)

If people get rid of that thing called ego.. then everybody is capable of having/showing this kind of love!
