All of these are by Tagore. He does say it all so beautifully. I really enjoy reading his poetry and looking for ones that I particularly like to share with you.
These are some of the beautiful things about love that perhaps we don't always think about. Love can make such a difference in all our lives if we recognize it and accept it rather than fight for or against it. And it comes to us in many differnt ways. Not the same for everyone. Not just lovers, wives or husbands or children. Sometimes the greatest love of all comes from those who can see inside us. And those might be husbands, wives, family, but they also may be those friends that somehow manage to see inside our hearts. How do you see love?
Love does not claim possession,
but gives freedom.
Love adorns itself;
it seeks to prove inward joy by outward beauty.
Love is an endless mystery,
for it has nothing else to explain it.
Love's gift cannot be given,
it waits to be accepted.
