What Is Love

Is love that child looking up to a parent clinging on every bit of encouragement you can give, or is it the joy and happiness that child brings into that parents life every day. Is love just a word you use to make you feel at ease with someone or a feeling of undying emotion that lets you know that you cant go on with the other.

Love as we know it can also be a painful thing cant it? I'm not just talking about cheaters and having your loved ones run away with your heart. I'm talking about the empty feeling Love can give you, that all alone feeling, the feeling that makes you wish you were dead. The kind I felt when my daughter was born the next day her lung collapsed and for 6 days was in an nicu unit incubator Hopeless, empty, blame,hate wonderful feelings to feel with love. Now my son he has a disease called neurofibromatosis (cafe o lait) it can affect almost anything it wants but mainly ears eyes and spine along with fibroid in or on the skin, Love him with all my heart but in a couple of days he goes in for his third brain surgery in 8 months to cure his water swelling his brain. Again i reiterate LOVE is feeling pain, feeling hopeless cant help him put his life in someone else's hands and you call that a fathers love. Well yes because love is taking the good with the bad saying i love you is easy being there and showing it in good times and bad times. Showing love isn't buying expensive things its giving the courage the respect, knowledge and holding someones hand in those moments of despair and in moments of jubilation as well.

Love what is love is it a good feeling or a bad one or a combination of both.
Is love meant to bring us together or destroy us because situations like mine its not uncommon to have hate and resentment for your partner and blame them or yourself for the situation which can destroy a relationship. Is love what you feel for someone or something or is love a emotion you express.

When you think of love its supposed to be grand and not to be made to feel bad till the end. In reality love is a perfect combination of good and bad that you get through with the relationship you have built. It is kind of like a house if you will, you can have all the best furniture the best car in the drive way best decor and even have it paid off but if the foundation is cracked and the roof has a small leak the first big storm that hits it is going to bring it down to the ground some will walk away from it angry and unaware of why it happened and others will rebuild so it can never ever happen again and that to me spells out love .
