Where Is The Love? - Prose

Where is the love that understands love
As a flower understands the sun and rain?
Where is the friend that understands friendship
As an eagle flies with a life adorned with free reign?
Can we raise the level of consciousness between us
To feel the unseen and see what we have never felt?
Where no goal or means to an end will exist
In the canyons carved into our hearts where loneliness will melt
Filling the void as you set sail on my presence in your world
Unthinking but reacting without recognition of roles
Because we are not in love but are love without expectation
As time becomes love lived but no longer measured by our souls

@Secret - Thank you! I wasn't sure if this one was going to get much attention. Just something that struck me last night about having a relationship with someone that is free of burden and expectation and is filled with understanding....

The love is still here,it is lost in the snuffle of so much unrighteousness , evil,and self agendas of the world. Love is a seed that will grow many kind of flowers.But only a few will experience the majestic meaning of it.

@Apostle Jack - Thank you for your insightful and thoughtful comment. Yeah I think many people miss out on true love.... agape... unconditional... with true understanding...

I love this, especially the first two lines. I will have to return to catch up, but I must say, from what I've read so far, I like your style.
