What is love? / Ano an pagkamoot by Eden A. Avila


What is love?... A beautiful stirring of the young heart, a sudden glance, a smile, a gentle touch. The fast beating of the heart, the quickening of one's gait to see one's beloved. It's the silence shared, forgetting the time, for nothing else matter but to be with one's beloved. The sweet " I do's " Oh, love so sweet and sublime. The voice of the first born, the gentle hands clinging, caressing your face, The walks under the paling light of the moon, the moon in the warmth of the sunrise, in the beckoning shadows of the sundown, on the soft, rough sandy shore. The days, years spent together. Until the unseen moment, The sudden grief of parting, The silent tears that fell. The silence, this time so lonesome Moving on! Still a decision of the heart. It's the twinkling star giving hope... and strength creating a newer world, a newer sound of laughter, a vision of another dream. The joy in one's heart. That one secret magical, mysterious, wise, wild, funny, foolish longing. An ambitious, unstoppable, uncaring, hurting void in one's heart. The thing most beautiful, untouched, unseen, but felt. That is love The river of life. 2015_0505_fflowerinpink267
