The Key to Love


“The Key to Love”

by Anon, 1st century China

“The key to love is  understanding …..

The ability to comprehend not only the spoken word,

But those unspoken gestures,

The little things that say so much by themselves.


The key to love is forgiveness

To accept each others faults and pardon mistakes,

Without forgetting, but with remembering

What you learn from them.


The key to love is sharing

Facing your good fortunes as well as the bad, together;

Both conquering problems, forever searching for ways

To intensify your happiness.


The key to love is respect

Realising that you are two separate people, with different ideas;

That you don’t belong to each other,

That you belong with each other and share a mutual bond.


The key to love is inside us all

It takes time and patience to unlock all the ingredients

That will take you to its threshold;

It is the continual learning process that demands a lot of work

But the rewards are more than worth the effort …

And that is the key to love.”
