The Fire Of Love
One half of me is yours, the other half yours
Mine own, I would say; but if mine, then yours,
And so all yours.— William Shakespeare in "The Merchant Of Venice."
I am here to love
I am here to stay
I am here to hold your hand
And play hide-and-seek with your gaze.
Please don't fade away from sight
All I've got is this vision.
All the crazy voices in my head say"no," but
I choose to be a child.
My choice is to wander in the dark and
Look for the light.
My tears will
Sustain my life.
The destination is far
Your heart is cold.
I will be your fireplace and
Keep you warm.
Come be my love forever.
Love is not for the weak of heart. It takes courage to love. All the uncertainties that love throws at one can only be overcome with strength.
A true lover is also a sacrificer. It is true that love is pleasurable, but it also involves sacrifice aplenty. In fact, the challenges that true love is confronted with make it more of a sacrificial experience than a pleasurable one.
Are you in love?
If you are a person in love, know this. You must give the relationship all you've got right from the very beginning, from the first glance that runs through your body like an electric current. Your courage in love, that courage to face anything that is thrown at you, will sustain you. It is this courage that will be the source of your victory even if passion dies out with time.
Courage and sacrifice, in the face of countless obstacles, create victory even when in the jaws of defeat.
Courage and sacrifice lie at the very heart of love.
Here's wishing you a day filled with loads of love and the strength to love no matter what!
