LOVE – What Does It Mean?

I love you Mom

I love you Dad

I love chocolate

I love ice-cream

Children utter these words

Not knowing

The meaning of love!

Do we know?

The meaning of love?

When we see

The morning sky

The beautiful landscape

Of the mighty painter

The playful colors

On the calm sea

Or the sweet melody

Of birds twitter

We whisper

I love these!

When our blood

Become warmer

With the presence

Of our darling

When our breath

Become faster

With the caress

Of our dearest

We whisper

I love you!

What is this love?

What does it mean?

Is the word LOVE

We utter every time

Is the same one?

When I say

I love deer

Does it mean?

I love its appearance

Or I love its eyes

Or I love its tender body

Or I love its flesh?

You have captured the mystery of our English language very well in your poem, cupid51. The word LOVE definitely has many meanings.

Many questions asked in this flowing poetic narrative on Love...Your heart is bigger than most, and as such, more vulnerable...beautifully written...

I look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace...Thank you for this share...Larry

Hi Cupid51,

Enjoyed reading your wonderful poem about love. Love can mean so many things and sometimes we can easily forget to appreciate the beauty in all that we see around us - what we see around us has most probably been someone else's labour of love.
