Shades of Love






Love is not only
When we hold on
It lives too, when
In time we let go

Love isn't only 
When we show,
It's alive too when
Furtive tears flow

Love isn't only when 
Together we could be 
It's love too, when 
In redeeming them, we split

Love isn't only when it's said to be,
It's there in the unsaid quiet
 
Of hopeful eyes and the still of lips
 
Born of ages of waiting mute

Love is in giving up
When right it is so to do
It's in failing with pride
When a chance is all you got

It's in burning to save
In suffocating to revive
To deliver the 'one' from pain
Gifting your soul as token

No lover ever measured love
Nor weighed it in earthly scale
To each his heart sang that note
That's how he knew that in love he fell
