Response to “On Love”

Khalil Gibran in his poem “On Love” has written about the purity and essence of love. I think love can’t be explained in limited words. But the way poet has expressed his feelings in this poem, is really superb. Love is something on which we can’t have control. It makes life beautiful. Though I remember my family at the first when I hear the word “love”, I do admire the type of love the poet in this poem refers to. Love between two opposite sexes has been described in this poem. I totally agree with the poet and his thoughts regarding love. Love is not the bed full of roses. If you crave to get roses, you should also be prepared to be hurt by thorns that come along with them.
It’s true that love makes our life beautiful but its negative sides also can’t be ignored. You often see and hear lots of news regarding crime and suicide because of love problems. People who have been deceived in love start to hate the whole world. But not all the girls and boys are betrayer. Some love stories succeed while some don’t. Time, distance, and environment greatly affect the people in love. Having trust and respect for each other is very essential along with mutual co-operation and willingness to sacrifice some times. The feelings of poet in this poem are really cute and romantic. When love calls you should hug it tightly, handle it carefully and nourish it with care and respect. If you don’t have courage to face the difficulties in love, you shouldn’t love any one. Love asks nothing but to be loved so, it shouldn’t be self-centered and with lots of expectations.
Longevity of any relation depends on how much you value your relation and the one whom you love. The feelings of being blessed to have them in your life, going to bed with prayer in your heart, and waking up being thankful to the one whom you love is wonderful. The presence of someone who understands you better than yourselves, who can see the tears hidden behind your smile, truly makes you feel so special. Love is not always about betrayal, tears, pain but if it’s true, it becomes your inspiration, your guide and your pride. Not only me, not only you, but having someone special by their side in each bliss and misery of life is what all the people desire. So, if you love someone learn to respect and cherish them from the core of your heart and if not then god must have written someone in your fate too who will come with his love and make your life elegant. Give, get, and live in love.

    Hey Jyoti,
    You talk like a poet in this essay. I have read love stories and seen love movies and most of them have happy endings, and you also sound the same. I really liked your essay. However, there is a line when you say “someone special by their side in each bliss and misery of life” which may be impossible for the girls living in AUW ( just kidding) . Your thoughts about romantic love are so positive that I started thinking it as truth to some extent. Because I rarely believe in romantic love, I cannot concede that it can be as deep and pure as you have expressed on your writing. Nevertheless, I find your essay so interesting and convincing that I read it twice and maybe I will read it again.
    With love,
