Who owns the love?

Often, we speak and write about love, We sing songs about love, we write poems and novels. Love is the most popular subject of songwriters and poets.

But we don't ask who the owner of love is.

I have my own theory about it.

Love is not a possession. Even if we love someone, we don't own the love per se.

Love is independent, and nobody knows if and when love hits us. We can't plan to love. It just happens.

Love doesn't have any schedule or ordinary plans.
Love can't be ordered and delivered. Love cannot be forced or demanded.
Love gives itself to us, but if we don't look after it, if we do not appreciate it, love leaves us again. Love comes unexpectedly and stays as long as we deserve it.

Some people say you can't lose the love.
They say if you say you lost the love, you had never loved.
How can they say so? How do they know that?

Nobody can see the love, and nobody can hear and touch the love. Nevertheless, she is the strongest feeling we are capable of. Love touches our hearts and souls, speaks the most wonderful words we ever heard, plays the most romantic melodies, makes us sometimes fools, can make us infinitely happy and sad at the same time.

But nobody can say he/she owns the love. We should treat love as that treasure as it is. Precious and irreplaceable.

Maximus potato, a nice interpretation of a quote, written by William Shakespear.

Wise and true words. I like it.

You changed some words...but...nevertheless...you should name the source where you took it.

Thanks for commenting on my post.

"Nobody can see the love, and nobody can hear and touch the love."   Still it is EVERYWHERE and in EVERYTHING. (Please let me add Rose).

Beautiful thought, written beautifully by a beautiful of heart.

Hello, Robinoz. Thanks for stopping by and reading my post. 

Joseph Campbell says with a minimum of words what love means. Someone who finds his/her counterpart of soul should know how gifted he/she is, should appreciate and protect this love.

My pleasure, dear Rose!

Again you are totally right! )))

The famous philosopher and mythologist, Joseph Campbell (Deceased), when asked what love is replied, "Love is seeing your soul's counterpart in the person of another."

It's a bit deep, but makes sense to me.

Hi, O.M.

You are totally right with everything you wrote.

If to clean our being from all the negative emotions and features, there will be left only love

I like your these words.

Thanks for commenting on my post. I always appreciate it.

Yes, dear Svitlana, WHY is always that question, we never find an answer. 

Love is most wanted and if we don't treat it carefully enough, it leaves us as fast as it came.

You are a good philosopher in life, dear Rose.
Indeed, I totally agree with everything you just said.
In fact, we can't control love. It comes and goes. One person can do nothing to keep love no matter how hard she or he tries. This feeling must be between both persons. 
But I am just curious about some questions. 
I think the question WHY? is the most difficult to answer.
Thank you, dear Rose, for sharing this romantic blog.
