Helpless love

Once upon a time all feelings and emotions went to a coastal island for a vacation. According to their nature, each was having a good time. Suddenly, a warning of an impending storm was announced and everyone was advised to evacuate the island.

The announcement caused sudden panic. All rushed to their boats. Even damaged boats were quickly repaired and commissioned for duty.

Yet, Love did not wish to flee quickly. There was so much to do. But as the clouds darkened, Love realised it was time to leave. Alas, there were no boats to spare. Love looked around with hope.

Just then Prosperity passed by in a luxurious boat. Love shouted, “Prosperity, could you please take me in your boat?”

“No,” replied Prosperity, “my boat is full of precious possessions, gold and silver. There is no place for you.”

A little later Vanity came by in a beautiful boat. Again Love shouted, “Could you help me, Vanity? I am stranded and need a lift. Please take me with you.”

Vanity responded haughtily, “No, I cannot take you with me. My boat will get soiled with your muddy feet.”

Sorrow passed by after some time. Again, Love asked for help. But it was to no avail. “No, I cannot take you with me. I am so sad. I want to be by myself.”

When Happiness passed by a few minutes later, Love again called for help. But Happiness was so happy that it did not look around, hardly concerned about anyone.

Love was growing restless and dejected. Just then somebody called out, “Come Love, I will take you with me.” Love did not know who was being so magnanimous, but jumped on to the boat, greatly relieved that she would reach a safe place.

On getting off the boat, Love met Knowledge. Puzzled, Love inquired, “Knowledge, do you know who so generously gave me a lift just when no one else wished to help?”

Knowledge smiled, “Oh, that was Time.”

“And why would Time stop to pick me and take me to safety?” Love wondered.

Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and replied, “Because only Time knows your true greatness and what you are capable of. Only Love can bring peace and great happiness in this world.”

“The important message is that when we are prosperous, we overlook love. When we feel important, we forget love. Even in happiness and sorrow we forget love. Only with time do we realize the importance of love. Why wait that long? Why not make love a part of your life today?”

    This makes my heart ache, I need to have my children with me. I can’t nor do I want to try to replace their sincere genuine unconditional love with anything or anybody! As I say this I know there is no other love like the love of a mother and her children! I have grieved the loss of my children from the last call 4 months ago after my parental rights were terminated, God how I wish I would have just one do over! I would sacrifice anything, anyone, just to be given the opportunity to follow DHS orders and to fight without feeling I had no way!! I miss my babies as I know they miss me, and I know they are sad and hurt and confused and even mad! It is killing me to not see, hear, or know anything about them. All of a sudden they have seemed to vanish from my existence, not seemed but have in all reality! 11 years of loving, protecting, cherishing them stole away forever because I did not follow DHS mandates, I allowed the influence of drugs and a man who was abusive in every way possible brainwashed me into almost a stupervied trance! Why was I so blinded? Thanks for your story very nicely written!

    Loves comes with time. I wonder y happiness didn’t notice love, coz therz no way u can be happy if u dnt hve love, if u love truly, u will FEEL nd BE loved, And thats the only way u can be happy, knowing that people have got love for u

  • Craig Lamar chipoh April 5, 2015, 11:53 am

    True story reality

  • Nitish January 24, 2015, 3:53 pm

    Love is nothing. Is it only fun? Why other would not think while leaving someone. Why she is not thinking about me, by the time i am not able to live without her, now i hate this word love, the above story is good but only for them who truly love each othet, not for the cheaters.

    • phia:> March 14, 2022, 8:41 am

      love is not only for romantic relationship. dont hate love coz its have a lot of aspect. dont you love ur mother? ur family? you can love without getting into relationship! cheer up dude. YOU ARE LOVED. she dont deserve you, you’re too much for her.

      • PRINCESS ALLYSON August 6, 2022, 11:39 am

        I agree with you. It is not a must for you to be in a relationship before you can be loved or before you can love someone.

    • phia:> March 14, 2022, 8:44 am

      i hope you are better now:>

  • Sen September 21, 2014, 1:05 pm

    I see the story magic again

  • Lamnganba July 25, 2014, 2:57 am

    That Love be somewhat illusion.

  • Tharini July 17, 2014, 7:32 am

    Nice story

  • Burnz April 14, 2014, 10:38 pm

    That was a nice story except the author had all his/her perspective on love which has to be shared to someone to make it complete. I ALWAYS LOVE MYSELF AND NO ONE ELSE AND THIS IS ALL THAT MATTERS. Romantic relationships/liaisons, unfortunately, are only for the weak and the faint of heart.

  • Derrick March 9, 2014, 3:58 pm

    Interesting. Like it so much.

  • Oloruntoyin February 6, 2014, 9:50 am

    What an interesting story about love.

  • Iram December 6, 2013, 7:44 am

    True story <3

  • Shrikant Choudhari November 10, 2013, 11:39 am

    It is one of the greatest moral stories. I liked it very much. Because love is blind, it doesn’t know anything. It knows only feelings on time.

  • Naresh November 8, 2013, 6:58 am

    Yes, it’s a universal truth that every one should know the value of love and the people who lost their love they can realize in their life time in any moment that I am in love with someone for sometime that is the power of love..

  • Allison November 1, 2013, 10:40 pm

    I really like this. The most beautiful feeling in life is love.

  • Mcbenard Rotich Kiwakak October 24, 2013, 11:53 am

    It has really touched me and moreover changed my life.

  • Ansh October 4, 2013, 3:00 am

    Really… yeah love is very important thing in our life :-)love is life.

  • Jamiela October 2, 2013, 2:32 pm

    Love does come with time and the moral of this story? Well…… there is only one love and that is the supreme power. Then followed by all the other aspects of love.

  • Ritaborg September 28, 2013, 3:23 am

    I believe in love very much and it is wonderful to feel but respect is very important and they go hand in hand. For me the person that is given us all this knowledge on this site and beautiful time we are spending god bless him for having, faith.. hope and love, in his time for us.

    P.s. lets be kind to one another.

  • Gupta Kamal alg September 19, 2013, 5:00 am

    Love is a daily need like bread in life.

  • Kriti September 14, 2013, 2:35 pm

    Love & time go hand in hand.

  • Precil September 11, 2013, 7:36 am

    Nice story..

  • Pranitha August 24, 2013, 7:27 am

    People so easily forget the people who once stood by them through thick and thin. Reason? Busy life. New friends. Fame. None of these reasons is a reason enough to overlook love.

  • Gayathri August 9, 2013, 5:44 am

    Really amazing story

  • Ammu July 25, 2013, 6:50 am

    That’s why people say there is time for everything you got to wait for the right time.

  • Maneet July 19, 2013, 4:44 am

    Speechless…beautifully penned down..

  • UD July 19, 2013, 2:23 am

    Yep yep… very true …. Finally we all need love… without love there is no life…

  • Shital July 12, 2013, 1:59 am

  • Sad June 5, 2013, 8:14 am

    It’s really great. Love requires time…

  • Shatabdi Das May 10, 2013, 8:24 am

    Love is life. I totally agree with this story as at the time of prosperity we really forgot love as we think that those are very small things our life. But time makes everything perfect.

  • Kritika May 5, 2013, 2:00 am

    Love is everything. I love this story 🙂 Superb for my project <3
