I have been blessed living with people and of course my books that taught me a lot of things and gave me a better insight of life. We live in a society where if ever i stand up on stage and say the word ‘love’ I am sure of hearing a loud roar from the young audience. While every kid has to grow up to be an adolescent and later into an adult, it is the small things and values which we learn in our early years that always stay back with us, in our veins, forever.
The irony of my life is, people i have loved the most have somehow physically disappeared but have always stayed here in the warm closet of my heart where i safely preserve these delicate petals that together make what i call my life
While love is the most spoke of thing on this planet, it is an undeniable fact that it is the most underrated one. Love is not a state of mind or life, it is an emotion which stays with us.
It is love that hurts but it is love that heals.
While looking at the big things and big distractions that life often engages us with, we often tend to neglect the small delights. Love is the sparkle in your eye and love is what it takes to take this sparkle in your heart.
I have found love in the librarians heart when he often saved my favorite books whenever i wanted to re read them. In the newspaper vendors heart who often by the mere look of me coming would hand out the newspaper i was fond of. I found love in the eyes of the grocer who would be delighted to see every morning. In the eyes of the kids i taught whenever i told them how beautiful life is. It is the attachment that kindles love. And whenever we meet these people again, love is re kindled.
So don’t wait for your prince charming or the lady love. Love is right here right now. Feel it like you mean to feel it and you shall see. Love attracts love. More lovable people shall come and heal your wounds, make you feel what you always wanted to be. Because to be loved you gotta love yourself. Love is not what begins with a kiss and ends with a heartbreak. Love is what makes you feel alive, every moment all the time. Love is what helps the sun shine in your garden of life, making it blossom like the spring shall never end.
But what awfully disappoints me is the kind of insight people have got about love. If you haven’t loved, you haven’t lived at all. while the world searched and googles love and life, i find myself lucky to have found love in the first cup of morning coffee, in the smell of an old book, in the hand of an old woman, in the blessing of an elderly man.
Let us all halt for a while in he pursuit of life, for a moment, only to see
Life is more beautiful than it seems to be.
Depends on not your eyes but what your heart shall see
Open the windows of your heart and let the breeze fill every part
