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?”

    Which is why I never believe in love on first sight.

  • Anjali April 18, 2012, 11:34 pm

    Nice story. Love is beautiful feeling and can be felt only once you fall in love with someone. Sometimes it’s pain also when you don’t get that person whom you love most but still this pain is also very sweet.

  • Shashi April 13, 2012, 7:11 am

    Yep, only time can change everything.. As it says: A thing is Lost Valued most, We dont the value of love when it is around us.. we know it only when we loose it forever!!!!

    True love is great and nice, but the most painful thing is when you are being seperated from the person you love so much due to one circumstances or another.

  • Subba Reddy February 15, 2012, 3:29 pm

    Good story to realize the importance of love. Author said how we ignore love when we are surrounded with. Better realize importance of love very soon

  • MUKAILA ADEKUNLE February 12, 2012, 4:00 am

    Love is mean for those that know Love; if you know not Love you will always miss Love before knowing LOVE. I prayed to Allah not to loose love before knowing LOVE. Amen.

    In my point of view, all people seek for money and they need love in certain situations, like sadness and their inner feeling of love is sex.

  • Vahid January 31, 2012, 2:32 pm

    The most powerful and persuasive means by which man can come to success, prosperity and happiness is love.

  • Midoo January 18, 2012, 6:12 am

    It is so true that love is very important but what does one do when even if you do realise the worth of love in your life, you are so helpless that you need to move on leaving love behind …. and live lonely forever.

  • ing ing January 10, 2012, 10:19 am

  • Naren November 21, 2011, 11:12 am

    It’s a unique approach to Mankind. The spoken contents in the script show a lot about the unspoken value….. lost love appears like the most familiar stranger….

  • Maria October 29, 2011, 11:13 am

    Only time can decide whether love that came to us is sincere or not, some people were in love for a long time but get divorce only in few days.

  • Monali September 21, 2011, 8:17 am

    Ya, it’s true, “time” is only one that realise to anyone. As per my thinking, love is life. Without love, no one can live. Love is god’s beautiful gift.
    Just help everyone and give love to all….

  • Hemanth September 21, 2011, 6:51 am

    The great feeling on the earth of love is …
    When you see your love sleeping near you,
    and murmuring your name in the deep sleep….
    hope not is more happier than thisssss

  • Neha August 6, 2011, 9:56 am

    Oh love… I don’t want to say anything for the love. Because it hurts me a lot… my love always give tears in my eyes and never love me as I do. I just want to say my love that I love him a lot… and want him to know the importance of me in his life…. but?….

  • Sarita July 16, 2011, 1:59 am

    It is a fact being time only a person realise the value of love.

  • Peeyush July 15, 2011, 12:46 pm

    The word LOVE always remind me about mother Teresa. I agree only love can bring peace and prosperity in this world. Hope one day the world will be full with the people who are filled with love and that will be true tribute to people who devoted their life for love like MOTHER TERESA.

    A wish of a common human being who hopes world peace every moment.

  • La July 10, 2011, 2:02 pm

    People do not realize the value of love until they lose it .Only time will show it.

  • Vany July 9, 2011, 6:52 am

    Love is nothing, when somebody doesn’t understand your feelings, your problems then which kind of love he/she do with you? Most of the time you feel alone… If u have lots of resposblities and if I’m busy so is it your fault? No love no pain.
