Love,

 

We know it.  We see it.  And, if lucky, we feel it.

 

I see you.  I notice you.  I think of you.

 

What is love?

An intense feeling of deep attracting, by definition.

But is yet found difficult to put into words.

 

I want you.  I need you.  I cannot live without you.

 

Where does it begin?

The first date.

The first kiss.

The first time.

Or is it unaimed?

 

I miss it.  I miss you.  I miss us.

 

Where does it lead?

Further dates.

Nights in.

Adventure.

 

Yours.  Mine.  And ours.

 

And where does love find its end?

The first fight.

Loss of interest.

Busy lives.

 

People risk their hearts with someone who was once a stranger to them.

 

I think of you.

 

Two strangers who chose each other out of billions find love in but one.

 

I cannot live without you.

 

But, for some peculiar reason, separate.

 

I miss us.

 

Two distant souls endlessly searching the world for the other.

For reasons beyond our knowledge we are burdened with hope and ignorance.

 

Ours.

 

What is love?

Is it the hop of success in this eternal search?

And the ignorance of the emotions that follow?

Love does not find an end.

It is only not found.

 

Where are you?
