" Love is like a flower............."

Love is Like a Flower............

Love is like a flower
with proper nurturing it blooms
and flourishes as each day passes.

if it is neglected,
in a moment's time
it soon withers and dies.

To hold love,
you must treat it as a rare and tender flower,
nurturing it with the utmost patience and care.

To keep it vibrant and alive
it takes many long hours of
continuous effort and constant attention.

To lose it
takes only a moment
of forgetfulness,
disinterest and mistrust.

To sow the seeds of love
is as wonderful as sowing
the seeds of magnificent garden,
and watching them flourish
and grow is a marvel in itself.

To sow the seeds of love
only to watch them wither and choke,
like a garden that's become full of weeds,
is a crime of the heart that none should commit.

Love can last an eternity,
like the gardens of a forbidden tropical paradise,
yet, in an instant,
it can be destroyed
by a hurricane of hate,
in a sea of bitterness
and despair.

  1. Love...
    Why does it hurt?
    Why does it ache?
    Maybe because we love too much
    and too deep that sometimes
    we forget to keep a little for ourselves...
    sad but true.

    I miss you most when I'm sad.
    I miss you when I'm lonely.
    But most of all,
    I miss you when I'm happy.

    I feel as if I could die tonight,
    knowing that you are not here.

    If a tear fell from my eyes each time I thought of you,
    I would have a puddle of fallen wishes.
