“Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.”
This excerpt on Love by Khalil Gibran is absolutely beautiful. If you’re like me, and you still love unconditionally and wholeheartedly, even when it hurts you the most, this reinforces that blind faith in the unmistakeable feeling. This is exactly what I needed today … and every day, for that matter.9 awesome people like this post
