Sometimes so overrated but the true essence of it undermined.
We see "it" in movies
Hear "it" on the radio
Ever so often deduced to sexual intimacy
Or dangerous infatuation, running wild and free
My generation is deeply in lack of it
Choosing someone based on their looks
Status and exterior
Opting for a temporal bliss when internal beauty is the defining factor
Treating the "chosen" one more like a trophy rather than a partner
Such self fish greed we possess
The things we do in the name of "love"
In these last days is truly hard to find
Just watch Gone Girl and you'll rethink of marriage
50 Shades of Grey and your love life turns greyer
Manipulation, lies, violence and dominance
Is what dominates the current social culture
Unlike pain does not demand to be felt
It comes naturally, mysteriously, sometimes in the most unassuming ways
Between the least expected people
But that's the beauty of it
The surprise and adrenaline it brings
Just cos you never saw it coming
Stands the test of time
Knows no boundaries
And has no depth
The longer you spend with that person
The deeper in love you fall
Those precious moments waking up to beauty beside you, messy hair, bed head, no make up and all
Takes bravery, courage and vulnerability
The risk to be honest with someone
The need for transparency
With the added probability of being rejected
Yet you try and see whether it'll work
Because the greatest regret would be of not trying at all
Is what I hope to achieve
I haven't met mine yet
But I'm still waiting...
For God honours those who wait doesn't He?
And I've come to a point in my life where I know without a doubt that "Papa knows best"
And He knows what's best for me
He would never short change me
Something so pure, so rare, so extremely hard to find
But I still believe in it
I see it in the eyes of my favourite worship leaders and pastors
Through the genuity of my childhood friends parents
Old, wrinkled yet still so full and filled with the capacity to love
A love so subtly strong
It takes your breathe away
Is my ultimate life goal
Because when two become one
You'd go further and stronger
And plus the fact that you two would have many mini "you's"
Oh such bliss true love could bring
I have faith that I'll meet that guy
I'll choose to love him with all my heart
For it's just a foreshadow of when the True Groom meets His spotless Bride
Such glory it embodies
The power it holds
Purity, beauty and the bond that comes with staying holy
I'm hoping that "us" will happen soon
Cos I'm not that young anymore and the clocks ticking
So please God, help us "both" see when it's time to see
Despite the age gap, family background or cultural differences
Let our "yes" be decisions we both make
And that we'll choose to see our "yes" comes through till the end of days
Is evident and I'm sure of it
My "Happily Ever After" as we ride through eternity
Call it day dreaming or even wishful thinking
But I truly believe in it.
Because these three remain..
Faith, Hope & Love
But the greatest of these is LOVE..
And in that I rest my case.
