What is love? This looks a simple query. Is it that simple? All of us talk a lot about love, read a lot about love, and use the word love so carelessly. What is love? Think for a minute? What is love? Is it a relationship? Is it an emotion? What is it?

Let us explore together. Let us first examine what it means to fall in love, or what happens to a lover who falls in love. Then they can carryover on from there. A glance at the face, and you can detect if anyone is in love? The eyes look dreamy, the smirk comes on lots of times, sometimes you will listen to a laugh, all while the lover is alone. It may be some recollection of days gone by. Or you will observe the excitement of meeting the beloved. The work is done fast, or postponed, eyes shine bright and look excited thinking of the time ahead, the pulse visibly goes up, and the walk is fast, in a rush to meet the beloved. To meet, share and walk hand in hand. Why? Love. But what is love?

Ask anyone to explain, and you will get an answer such as he/she is dearest to my heart. I feel heavenly. He/she is absolutely great. They cannot think of life without each other. If anything happens to my beloved, I will die. Oh, I feel so lovely when I am with my partner, I cannot describe. Oh, love my partner so much, it hurts.You will listen to all these and lots of more such rambling answers. But nothing specific about what exactly is love. Is this making sense?

Let me try answering this query. Love is an emotion that binds person to another in a relationship that cannot be described. Lovers are worried only about making their beloved happy. Those in deep love cannot stay away even for a small time. They are prepared to forget and sacrifice most of their other relationships for the sake of their love. They are prepared to die for each other, and history tells us that sometimes it happens. Love is an emotional relationship that can seldom be described, but can only be experienced. Try explaining the taste of sugar, to anyone who has seldom tasted anything sweet. You will seldom be able to do it. For that the other person has to eat sugar. Similarly, love can seldom be explained. One has to fall in love to know of its bliss. Please, do so at the earliest opportunity.

What's love?!
Is a question.
What's love?!
Is an answer.
What's love?!
Is a wake up call from the valley.
What's love?!
Is a slogan from the top of the mountain.
What's love?!
Is a beginning.
What's love?!
Is an end.
What's love?!
Is morning sun,
Afternoon sun,
Evening sun,
Midnight sun!
What's love?!
Is a beginning of the end.
What's love?!
Is not the end itself.

What's love?!
Is a red traffic light;
Meaning STOP!
What's love?!
Is a flashing amber;
Meaning control yourself!
What's love?!
A green traffic light;
Meaning PROCEED when it's clear!
What's love?!
Jam yesterday,
Jam tomorrow, but
Never jam today!
What's love?!
Is a title.
What's love?!
Is a project.
What's love?!
Is a blog.

What's love?!
Is a "Pull Together!"- "Harambee!"
For all Humankind;
Young and Old,
Male and Female.
What's love?!
Is a reminder of the little details;
Of paramount significance.
If I could make myself;
I'd divide myself into parts!
The bigger part;
I'd give you!
And the smaller part;
I'd remain with,
All in the name of LOVE!
Today is the dawn of a new day!

Love is…
Hard to say goodbye.
When you want to travel on a long,
Long journey;
That will last for
Months, or even
You begin to wonder,
Wondering what it is in life,
That you have to leave;
Your dear family,
Dear relatives, and
To go work in a far,
Far land;
To get food and drink-
For the family.
While others get their daily bread,
Just at their doorstep.
Such thoughts,
Make it even harder;
To utter heartily
The wonderful word,

Lovely is music,
When it hits;
You feel no pain.
Lovely is music,
When it rocks;
You forget your sorrows and you begin to dance.
Lovely is music,
When it beats;
You feel you've got to push on with life,
However difficult it may seem.
Feel lovely music,
Listen to lovely music now!

Lovely is music,
When it blasts;
You don’t tire up!
Lovely is music,
When it hits;
You feel so nice!
Lovely is music,
When it bursts;
 You feel so high!
So high,
Like even touching the sky!
Feel lovely music!
Dance to the tunes of lovely music now!
Sing lovely music!
Listen to lovely music now!
Chant lovely music!
Hit me with lovely music now!
For upon the rising sun.
Lovely is music,
Upon the midday sun.
Lovely is music,
In the evening sun.
Lovely is music.
Oh, don’t stop there…!

Keep on moving…!
