»Real Love«

by Tshepo Direro, June 23, 2018

Real love does not lie
It is always honest
Real love does not speak
It reveals itself
Real love is not heavy
It lightens the burdens of life
Real love does not use people
It is always just
Real love does not hurt
It relieves the pain
Real love is without fear
It removes all the doubts
Real love is not about loving a perfect person
It is about being a perfect person
Real love is not an emotion
It is a godly decision
Real love does not hold grudges
It is forgiveness even if it was not your fault
Real love does not take
It gives wholeheartedly
Real love is not a toy
It is eternal
May the true Love be with You

The end starts in the beginning / The puzzle of Old, / Understood only by wise men, / That powers within human beings are infinite / Made to look finite by the world of time / / Lest ye say that life is hard / Instead say that I'm harder than life / For our souls are like gardens / Made precious by the  sign in to read more »
