What Is Love

What is love?

This looks a very simple question. Is it that simple?

We all talk so much about love, read so much about love and use the word love so carelessly.

What is love? Think for a minute? What is love? Is it a relationship? Is it an emotion? What is it?

Let us explore.

Let us first examine what it means to fall in love, or what happens to a lover who falls in love.

Then we can carry on from there. A look at the face, and you can detect if someone is in love?

The eyes look dreamy, the smile comes on many times, sometimes you will hear a giggle, all while the lover is alone.

It may be some recollection of days gone by.

Or you will observe the excitement of meeting the beloved.

The work is finished fast, or postponed, eyes shine bright and look excited thinking of the time ahead, the pulse visibly goes up, and the walk is very fast, in a hurry to meet the beloved.

To meet, share and walk hand in hand. Why? Love. But what is love?
