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?”

    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

  • 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.

  • 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

    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.
