Love

Parents to their children

Children to their parents,

The wind is the same

But the feel is different.

 

Brother to his sister

Sister to her brother

The heart is the same

But the beats are different.

 

Wife to her husband

Husband to his wife

The bower is the same

But the beauty is different.

 

Lover to his lover

Lover to her lover

The dale is the same

But the calls are different.

 

Man to his possessions

Man to his mansions

The song is the same

But the chords are different.

 

Man to his tastes

Man to his themes

The window is the same

But the peeps are different.

 

Love is one of condition,

Love is one of possession.

Love of this kind is a web

And leaves mankind in eternal sobs

 

A twinkling star

A baby’s captive smile

The verses are the same

The readings are the same.

The presence of God
The presence of great men
The core is the same
The fountains are perennial.

Synopsis
The concept of love is universal but individual perception can be different – it can be a conditional, possessive love or otherwise according to the wavelength of our heart. This is the highlighting issue of the poem. This means that our love need not be reciprocated in the same way as we might wish. Only in the presence of god, in the presence of great men, in the captive smile of a baby, in the presence of various hues of Nature, can we discover unconditional love and peace. If we can accept this view, then, our love won’t mean our own cross.
