What's my life without love

They say beauty defines you 
But I think your heart defines you
Your heart is an unique jewel 
Made to be shined and loved 

Your heart and my heart are no different 
They beat the same joy of living 
Maybe sing different tunes 
But their rhythms are exactly alike

Fragile maybe but heartbeat strong
Tireless to care and smile
They sing they cry they fly they fall 
They go thru a lot yet unrelenting to beat on 
 
Baby your heart is beautiful 
You can't do no wrong letting it shine 
Remember risk is where reward comes from
Perchance happiness 

As my heart is soft and yes fragile 
Been broken and cried countless times 
Yet relentless to love on 
Because what's my life without love


        Smile

Beautiful. Some people can die from a broken heart. In other's it's a very strong conduit to forgiveness, loving and survivng. How much you have inside you measures your worth, not wealth, materialistic value. Physical beauty is very transient, it doesn't last forever, the true beauty is definitely inside. Lovely poem Akkina.

How much love you have measures your worth, No matter where you exist on this earth; Am polite, Day and night; Was nice and took upper and gave her lower birth.

Such a beautiful written poem, yeah love is one of the most important thing in your life, no matter how many times your heart is broken yet you found it trusting someone else again, everyone needs somwone to share their feelings, share their happiness and sadness with someone, want someone to love them, help them and only your true love help you in these moments, living a life without love is really difficult

A life without love is just that. A life without love. Sadly, there are some who live without much love. Let us all pray for love to flourish in everyone's heart. Congrats on potd Akkina. You've expressed warm insight and yes, love in this poem. :)
