The Meaning of True Love

by Anon

The meaning of true love isn’t found in a book
Or explained in a word or a phrase.
It can’t be defined in a casual thought
Or explained in the simplest of ways.
Love gives only itself, it does not possess
Yet creates a bond strong and true.
Love does not demand, it stays young and free
Yet grows with you all your life through.
Love isn’t a fashion, a trend or a whim
That’s forgotten or just cast aside.
Love is constant, fulfilling your hopes and your dreams,
It doesn’t destroy or divide.
Love isn’t accusing, it does not condemn
And though some may say it is blind;
Love is trusting, forgiving and honest
Because it lives in the heart – not the mind.
Love is not bought or sold, it’s not borrowed
Or has a price you would willingly pay.
Love is a gift that can only be kept
As long as it’s given away.
