Such a complicated word. A word that scares the living heck out of some, and yet seems so unobtainable to others.
But our innocence is quickly lost, and somewhere along the way, love may become lost as well.
As life becomes more complicated, we end up making mistakes, and eventually, we cause our own love to fail.
A Lesson Learned
Even though we are sitting together in the same room, intense loneliness is what I feel.
I also feel pain and sorrow from my heart breaking in two.
The unpenetrable silence is unbearable.
You sit there brooding over things in the past.
There were promises broken; lies were spoken.
All of these are things I cannot take back.
I sit here wishing for a gentle word or a soft touch.
I pray to a deaf god to help me make things right.
I ask him to help us get back the love we once had.
I can't fix all that I have broken.
There are some pieces smashed beyond repair,
so I can't glue them all back together again.
I just sit here drowning in my despair.
I am hoping for a miracle to come and save our love from the bows of destruction.
Sometimes we become a lover spurned, and sometimes love is only one sided.
He lay there listening to the waves crashing against the cold drab rocks.
A dreamy smile flooded his face.
She sat there looking at him, wishing the ocean would swell up and engulf her so that she would never fell the heartache again.
He just laid there dreaming of another.
She felt alone.
Like waves crashing violently against the shore, my heart slams against my chest.
The pain I feel is unbearable. The damage is real. Why did I let you climb over the wall I have for so long guarded? Why did you steal my love and leave me so empty?
And then sometimes, we get lucky enough to find someone we think we could spend the rest of our life with.
Your love for me is tender.
It's genuine and true.
You can always make me smile,
When I'm broken down and blue.
I was a very lucky lady,
To find such a wonderful man.
Through life we will go walking,
I want you to know that you are special;
You're a gold mine just for me.
Standing right beside you,
is where I always want to be.
On a chain or in your pocket,
No matter where you keep my heart,
I know you will keep it protected,
and never let it fall apart.
I love you with all of the power,
That God has given to me.
Together is how we will be spending Our eternity.
So, as you can see, as we travel through life's journey, we met love along the way. And it seems that love is a chameleon that takes on many forms. A shape shifter in the night that changes as time passes. Sometimes we get really lucky and we get to experience the most wonderful gift in the world. Unconditional love.
I am one of the lucky few to have experience that wonderful gift. I experience it every day. For me this is what unconditional love looks like.
I bet the view is totally different for you.
