Your poem brings up a love for living, a feeling of being excepted. ( even if it is only from a animal. My cat is my best friend some days.) The message that you give is wonderful. If only everyone would try to live life to the fullest..then perhaps the world would be a happoer place. A good thinking piece.
What a wonderful interpretation on love. I must confess, i haven't written a thing on love these past few months and yet i have so much of that in my life with all the people who surround me.
There a different types of love and i'm glad you highlighted that with the love of a dog or a child..There were others you could have mentioned but i guess those were the first ones that came to mind. I had one dog in my life...It loved everybody but we had to find her some new owners because everytime she saw laundry whether it was the neighbours or ours...it ended up being dragged on the floor...By then end of six months, we were out of clothes. But still, that dog loved us.
I would debate the entire issue about friends...There is a saying that you can count your true friends on one hand and i believe in that...i had so many friends in my life and in times of trouble, the ones i could really count on were the ones i could have counted on my one hand. So i would debate that.
Other than that, although i enjoyed the topic you have chosen and the thoughts that you have taken, maybe you should go beyond the definition of love...To me, this feels like a surface that could be digged up and found more precious stones. I don't know, i feel you have so much more to say about this. Just a gut feeling though...No biggy.
There were a few words you have mis-spelled like cruel and regrets. But it's only a minor error, we do that all the time.
Hope we talk soon again. This is a very nice write...It kinda cheered me up. Take care... ~Irina
