Pains Of Love

It hurts to love and not 
be loved in return.
But,
lt hurts more to love and 
never find the courage to 
express your feelings.
Love hurts when you 
remove the feeling, 
passion and romance in a 
relationship,
yet discover you still care 
for that person.
It hurts more when 
someone loved is needed,
someone who means a 
lot;
someone who matters 
most.
Only to discover that you 
were never meant for 
each other;
and you've to let go.
At the closure of the door 
of happiness,
another opens.
Though often we tarry at 
the closed doors;
that we don't see the one 
opened for us.
The best love of friends is 
the one you'll be with,
never say a word;
then walk away feeling 
the best conversation 
ever.
We don't know what love 
we're missing until it 
arrives.
Giving someone all your 
love
is never an assurance of 
love in return,
let love grow in their 
heart;
though it doesn't.
Be content it grew in 
yours.
There abounds words 
you love to hear,
but
never would hear them 
from the person you 
expected.
Be not deaf never to hear 
those words,
from the one who says it 
from their heart.
Never say goodbye,
if you can still try.
Never give up,
if you can still go on.
Love comes to those who 
still hope,
though were 
disappointed.
To those who still believe,
though were betrayed.
To those who still need to 
love,
though were hurt before.
To those who have 
courage and faith to 
build trust and 
relationship again.
It takes a minute to get a 
crush on someone.
An hour to like someone.
A day to love someone,
but
it takes a lifetime to 
forget someone.
Don't go for looks,
they can deceive.
Don't go for wealth,
it fades away.
Don't go for fame,
it passes with time.
Go for character and 
charisma,
go for content not 
container,
go for love not lust.
Go for quality not 
quantity.
Go for someone who 
makes you smile,
because
it takes a smile to make a 
dark day seem bright.
Go for someone who 
values you,
who makes you feel 
secured.
Hope you find that 
someone that makes you 
smile.
