The (True)love

Love isn't owned and cannot be taken
It can only be given
If you love someone, you have to give them
The freedom to choose for itself

The (true)love is only in one direction
The other direction of love is tainted by the reason
For the love - something other than true love

True love is between two people
and is mutual in nature
Based on the calling of the heart

By turning the other person loose,
Then if they come back, it is (one hopes)

If they don't come back, you would only have been fighting
A losing battle to hold on to them

That is a battle that you will eventually lose
So lose it early and get on with your life
