What is Love

Do you love me?
And I say yes,

What do I mean?
What is love?

Is love the longing I feel
When you are away from me
Or is it the anxiety I feel
When I do not hear from you

Is it the ache in my heart
To see you unhappy
And not speaking to me
Is it the racing heartbeat
Waiting for you to emerge
From  the arrival gate, or
The anxious anticipation of
Meeting you on my return home

Is it what I felt years back
When we first met
Unsure but willing to commit
Is it the fire that used to
Run through me at your sight
But then what about now
When all I want is
A few quiet moment
Just you and me
Alone
Side by side, at peace

I am not sure what it is
All of the above
And a lot more perhaps
I still have butterflies
Just thinking about you

And though I would like
Nothing better than
To hold you in my arms
And just relax
I love more to see you soar free
And reach for the sky, and
Achieve what you want

I will be waiting
With open arms
Always for you
Cause I know
One place
You will always be
In my heart
If that is love
So be it

Never shall I ask
Do you love me
Have my answer already


This completes my poem a day for the month of April 2019 written with the theme of “Love”.

I am in love

Indifferent I am not

It is just that

When I am with you

I do not see anything else

And when you are away from me

I can only think of

When I shall see you next

Now tell me between these

How can I think of

Anything else

So next time you say

I am indifferent

I say no

I am in love 

With you,

My sweetheart

Love is heavenly

Pain of waiting exquisite

A game played by two

*************

Love blossoms quiet

A sign subtle raises hope

Heart sure skips a beat

************

Hear music in air

Real, imaginary

Love sure does not care

*********

Celestial is love

Mundane ego in the way

A parting of path

*********

Waiting and hoping

Love not a path of roses

Thorns are part of love

*********

Communication

Understanding, listening

Hope is essential

********

Love is happiness

Not a forbidden apple

Let go of ego
