A Poem about Unconditional Love

Updated on October 11, 2012


Unconditional Love

The petals in my eyes wilted long ago

The day they fell to the dirt

I saw you clearly

But the first time I saw you

I knew there was something beautiful, different

So the day the flowers died

I brushed the dirt from your face

We planted a new seed

I promise

to pull the weeds

I promise

to nurture the blossom

I promise

the thorns won’t stop me

My thoughts on this

This poem to me is all about accepting someone for who they are. Too often, we something in someone else that we don’t like, and we let go of them. Even if the pro list is much longer than the con list, we seem to forget all the good in a person at the first sign of a flaw. I feel like we should put more effort into relationships, whether it is a romantic relationship, our relationship with our children, or a friend.

      Once again, I read this and I agree with you that it takes work to keep love alive and healthy.

      I wasn't very able to do this in my past relationship because I didn't know how to take the bad with the good. I hope I can learn to do love someone despite their faults, because the good ones are so valuable and pleasant.
