Poems, Poetry & Quotes


Love Isn't Practical

It isn't meant to be easy. It doesn't appear on command. It doesn't let you fall for whomever you'd like. It surfaces neither at the most opportune moment nor in the most convenient. It'll pair you with someone you might never have expected. It'll put you face to face with endless obstacles. But in the end, none of that will matter because it's how you overcome its obstacles that will define your love. It may not be practical, but love is ultimately the best thing that will ever happen to you.

I Love You

means that I accept you for the person that you are,
and that I don't wish to change you into someone else.
It means that I do not expect perfection from you,
just as you don't expect it from me.
'I Love You' means that I will love you and stand by you even through the worst of times.
It means loving you when you are in a bad mood or too tired to do the things I want to do.
It means loving you when you are down, not just when you are fun to be with.

. ~ Oscar Wilde

Love is patient and Love is kind
it is not jealous or conceited or proud
is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable,
Love does not keep a record of wrongs,
Love is not happy with evil,
but is happy with the truth.
Love never gives up,
and its faith, hope, and patience never fail.

Without respect, love is lost.
Without caring, love is boring.
Without honesty, love is unhappy.
Without trust, love is unstable.

I Loved you Yesterday
I Love you Still
I Always have...

And every dream I've ever had,
And no matter what happens to us in the future,
Everyday we are together is the greatest day of my life.
I will always be yours.
