I love you.
What would you say
If I took those words away?
Then you couldn't make things new
Just by saying 'I love you.'

Love isnt... Candy and Flowers.

More often than not, couples believe thats the most important ingredient of love. How else am I supposed to show her/him that I love him/her? is a common explanation offered. More like a unwritten or unspoken law.

Sure, when you love someone you do feel a need to express that love. Such modes of expression are nice, but, not PRIMARY. What is ridiculous here is that days like V day become an issue rather than just another excuse (nice) to celebrate.

The most mature expression of love is unspoken.
Don't agree? Let's look at it this way: To maintain something you need to put in the same inputs that went into the making of it. Right?
When you fell in love, candies and flowers were not exchanged.

So... what made you fall in love in the first place?

What was it
That I saw in you
Which made me lose
All my cool.

What was it
That caused a ripple
Within the still waters
Of my heart

Was it the gleam in your eyes
When our glance met once in a while,
Was it the lop-sided smile
Which lit your face when you passed by me

Was it the long out-stretched hand
Which held me back when I stumbled,
Was it the kind words you said
When for no reason I was humbled

Whatever it is
I only know
That I am not myself anymore

The sky seems bluer
The moon too bright
My heartbeats do not feel quite right

I know I'll wait
But how long more
To hear your silence
Break to speech...

And then.. it happens. Come in the flowers, the candy. For those lucky ones, if the original inputs remained unchanged/increased... Romance! Rejoice!! Ravioli!!!

But for those, for whom all that went out the window, or took a backseat... Rejoice now, hold your breath later! Suddenly after commitment, couples forget to "talk". It's nobody's fault really. All this has come in through years of conditioning.

It is the latter relationship which is soo relationless. Why do you NEED to utter sweet nothings or give materialistic things to PROVE your love??? Love is SHOWN, and not based on gifts or words. Your parents don't keep belabouring how much they love you, but you KNOW. And that's the TRUE unparalleled beauty of it. Why can't we emulate that in every other relationship of love?

Saying 'I Love You'
Is not the words
I want to hear from you
It's not that I want you
Not to say

But if you only knew
How easy It would be
To Show me how you feel

More than words
Is all you have to do
To make it real

Then you wouldn't Have to say
That you love me
I'd already know.
