The Path of Love

In Love there are no rules,

But there is a path to follow.

*

The path of Love is easy to walk on.

It is not very difficult, trust me.

*

In the path of Love you can either become the sun or the moon.

When you illuminate Light you become the sun,

and when you reflect Light you become the moon.

*

Be the sun and enlighten the world,

Or be the moon and reflect light.

Either way, never ask the earth to return your favor,

And never be disappointed when your endeavors bear no fruit.

*

When it is your turn to become the sun,

I would be happy to become the moon and reflect your light.

*

And when it is my turn to become the sun,

You would be happy to become the moon to reflect my light.

*

If we take turn just like that,

The earth and its inhabitants will never know darkness.

  7. The beauty in this piece is the equal comparison of love between. Too often, we perceive as one half of the whole being lesser in some way, but I really like how you create that equality: providing light and reflecting light. Splendid job, Subhein!

    • Hi Konstantina, yes, you are right. You must know it, because in Greek it is called ‘Agape’, but we don’t have the equivalent in English, so probably the word needs to enter Webster, CollinCobuilds, Macquarie, and Oxford Dictionaries and become an English word, even though probably for the time being the word ‘Love’ quite explains everything. May the Light of Love perpetually shine in your heart ♥

      • When you say to somebody s’ agapw (I love you) it is very very important, in english we use the word love even for the mustard!
        Thank you for your answer.

    • Hi Maryanne, thank you for your kind words, as always, you are one generous soul. If you love this post, please share so you can become the moon that reflects Light and keep Love in its full circle ♥

  10. Subhan’Allah, dear Subhan – for such a flame in your heart. Your poem resonates my recent painting (on my blog).
    You have written in absolute nirvana, it reveals a beautiful heart.
    Keep shining and may the blessings continue in your journey. Lots of love.

    • Mashaal, my lovely sister, I miss you so much. I have been meaning to write you an email. I will do it today. I hope life is treating you well in Toronto and that winter is now over, you can have more time to be under the sun and enjoy the glory of your days. Thank you for your lovely words, they have become the morning dew for the thirst of my soul. You are one generous soul. May the Light of Love perpetually shine in your heart, my sister ♥

      • You know I completely adore, love and value you ever much so much! Btw, check out my new paintings — you shall see part of yourself in the painting. Subhan’Allah. Much love, you sis!

    • A man has to do what his heart tells him to do, Sylvia. Other than that are either greed, jealousy, cowardice, or vanity. May the Light of Love perpetually shine in your heart, Namaste, ♥

  11. You are the sun right now with this post, so I will just reflect your light, Subhan. Thank you for bringing light to my day. {{{hugs]}} Kozo

  12. Reblogged this on Paul Brodie and commented:
    This poem fits well with a lot of what I’ve been thinking about lately. Especially the last stanza. I think it sets a nice table for some of my upcoming posts. I hope it does.

  13. “The path of love is easy to walk on.” In practical terms that seems to elude the majority in our world today. War, poverty, exploitation is all around and the demonstration of true love is so rare that people are surprised and confused when they see it in action.

    • Ian, of course you are right, in practical terms. Thank you for pointing out a defect in my poem, I will learn to be more careful. May the Light of Love be with you, Ian. ♥

    • I would like to disagree. Personally, I think practical and love are two words you can’t really use in the same sentence, love doesn’t demand, doesn’t destroy. Isn’t love easier than war, poverty and exploitation?

      • Of course love is superior, but if you look at our world you see millions starving or unable to access clean water. The latest count in Syria civil war is 4 million displaced or unable to escape. We find the same situation in other countries too. If there was genuine love in the world we would not have those problems would we?

    • Hi Robert, thank you for your comment. I don’t think I’ve let you know my new blogging schedule: it’s every Thursday. May the Light of Love perpetually shine in your heart ♥
