When love is not madness, it is not love

Valentine’s Day – I was wondering how it was initiated and as the time went ahead how this event became a festival :)

“Truly loving another means letting go of all expectations. It means full acceptance, even celebration of another's personhood.”

Yesterday I was shopping in the evening and I saw this guy who was with his maintenance jacket on top which showed he was working somewhere and just stepped in to the shop and bought hyacinths with a small heart inserted in the pot and yes a tag with ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’.

He paid for these flowers and while doing so he asked the helper guy in the shop did you see a girl with short hair just walking out of the store? She just bought lemonade and the helper guy ran outside to look for and by then this guy took the flower and he forgot the card on the cashier’s table. Suddenly, the cashier said- Sir, you forgot the card that you bought and he said oh!!! Yeah! He was much engrossed in finding his valentine… ! He took the card from the Cahier’s hand and went out. His eyes were searching for her all the way. The boy who went in search of the girl came back and told to the cashier I don’t think so I have seen her…!

“Loving is not just looking at each other, it's looking in the same direction.” ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
I finished paying to the cashier and got into my car and I started my car and lit the headlights on and what I see is…the guy was on his knee on the road in front of my car proposing the short hair girl who was holding lemonade still in her hand :) .

The moment was so special that unknowingly I smiled and the guy looked at me and winked and all I could do was – ‘ThumbsUp’, as if carrying on I will only go when she accepts it.

“Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.” ~Albert Einstein
The girl was blushing and all red and when she saw me still waiting she ran into the guy’s arms and all I could do was wish good luck and say good bye!!!

Whole night I was thinking ….how sweet and innocent was that love and gesture. No wonder when one falls in love they do crazy things ;)

I think if we are human we should do crazy things no matter what time and day is that.

“Love is a symbol of eternity. It wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of an end. “ ~Author Unknown

We choose a day to wish everyone Valentine’s day and I wish that we could make this everyday …how beautiful it would be that people will be giving roses to their valentine and if anyone is angry they can give any such rose that will express their anger :) yet this world would be a better place to live – a place with full of love and fragrance
“Without love, what are we worth? Eighty-nine cents! Eighty-nine cents worth of chemicals walking around lonely.” ~M*A*S*H, Hawkeye

i am a gorilla in the forest, Sehr, i look like a gorilla too, very hairy and dreadful, but my life has been full of love and affection, sometimes overflowing which is painful.
Love brings out the best in us.
Smiling ear to ear reading your post Sehr, that is what your post has done to me.

Great observation and awesome delivery. As I type this, mind drifts through those good old days when there was a readiness to do anything for love. Love is madness and can't be otherwise. The mind disappears and love takes control of you. It's a feeling when you feel you have felt a feeling you have never felt before. Hat's off to those lovers.
