What love is fr…

What love is free from pain?
A painless love is beyond our imagination.

A mother holding an infant feels a pang

as though a sword pierced her breast.

A lover looking in the face of his beloved thinks of the pain of
parting.

A child basking in it’s mother’s love

is suddenly warned of the time when she will be taken away from it.

Show me a love that is devoid of sorrow and pain,

and I will show you a false and shallow love.
