What Is Love?

I never knew the meaning of Love;
Until I met you my dove.
The moment I saw and heard you;
I feel for you.
You treated me as a friend;
I treated you more than a friend.
Finally, the day came when I opened my heart;
You accepted it and gave me your heart.

The journey started with the caring bond;
We use to walk and talk more than a beyond.
There were no limits to our love;
In which we have dipped over and above.
Even cats and dogs wouldn’t fight so much;
Even love birds wouldn’t love so much;
We fought and loved each other more than that much.

The time came, when we had to move for our future;
Did the hard work, so that we can be successful too in our career.
This was the time, we required each other’s support;
Not only supported but also gave a maturity to our love fort.
We were on the successful verge;
Together with each other on each and every curve.

Time came to give this relationship a name;
Told our parents; which resulted into a flame.
Thought to fight till the last moment for staying together;
Took the battle as a challenge, so that we can nurture together.
Peace and tears started rolling down;
However, we didn’t let our love drown.

Finally, the verdict came;
She was forced to walk with someone else on another lane.
We were hit hard with this setback;
Couldn’t understand what we should do to get back.
She had to make a move on her parents will;
There was no way towards our will.
I tried hard to get her back;
But she refused showing me her back.

She started taking steps towards her lane;
I had to move on my lane.
She killed herself, for the people who don’t care;
I had to kill the feelings for her, as she doesn’t care.
She feels uncomfortable talking to me;
As she feels she is betraying the person with whom she will be.
I gave her time to get comfortable;
As she will have to unplug and plug the cable.
He is the priority for her future, I totally agree.
But 1 out of 10 times, I also deserve the priority don’t you agree?
Patience is the word, which I have learned recently;
Never thought that she will teach me so fluently.
Somebody ask her to not test my love;
In which, once I was dipped over and above.
