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
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.
