Meaning Of Love

Meaning Of Love

1 min 524 1 min 524

Do you know the meaning of this word called love?

It has a thousand synonyms; isn't it weird?

I must have felt it first before I was born

When I lay in her womb disfiguring her form.


She delivered me, no love she hid

Forgetting her pain'Me' she held and kissed.

My father too must have looked at me with pride

Tickled my little toes soothed me when I cried.


Then my toddling self they must have run after

Their joys must have dwelled in my brief laughter

The food I ate and the dress I wore

Every morsel, every fiber, showed the love for me they bore.


Then in my life, my siblings showed

How in each little heart, love glowed

My friends, they said not that me they loved

But love spoke though not in words.


I walked further with another

Ready to fly, I'd now grown feathers

Happy and content, l needed none then

As I waved everyone off, I saw love in their teardrops.


Looking back today I see that babe, that toddler,

That child, that youth

Taken care of then and thereafter

I see love in its lovely hues


Hundred times unfurled, million times felt

Though ungratefully sometimes I felt it misspelled

But Yeah! Today I know for sure

It's on the wheels of love on which our lives roll.
