Seasons of Love

seasons of love

Without meaning to lie, they will teach you half-truths: they will tell you love is sweet only in the summers of one’s youth.

They will tell you love is real if, and only if, it survives the harshest winters.

They will tell you love must die like autumn leaves in order to be beautiful. They will tell you “don’t trust spring — because the flowers in the breeze are not worth the threat of rain.” They will tell you these things because they have learned nothing.

At its truest form, love is a study in seasons.

Love is as much the huddle for warmth when the weather is cold, as it is the sweat on your back when it’s time for the sun.

It is afternoon peace, when you welcome the night with its stars and its chill; but it is also bravery, when you’re given the promise of morning but can’t be given the promise of a gentle morning.

Love is magical, love is mystical, and it is whimsical too; you can even ask my crystal ball…

  1. Yeah … I’ve got it Mich… !!
    … love is every season, and the ones in between
    … love is every moonbeam, and the ones in between
    … love is every sunrise, and the ones in between
    … love is afternoon sea-breeze, and the cool evenings in between
    I know these visions of love to be a true call
    Because I’ve been and asked your crystal ball…

  4. The love that only lasts a season, the love that shrivels and dies when the wind blows or the rains come, that is not love – it is like and lust both temporary emotions. Love is enduring and lasting and will not only survive hardship but increase in it! A wonderful poem that reveals the truth of true love!
