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?”

    Love is not only between people… love is what parents show toward their precious children.
    Love is the thing that God shows toward you. Love is that of a small kid shows toward you.
    LOVE is in many forms…. but it is expressed with the help of TIME.

    Eh? Am I the only one here that notices…”Once upon a time all feelings and emotions went to a coastal island for a vacation.”

    Time and knowledge are not feelings and they sure as hell ain’t emotions.

    Love is within us and everywhere but mostly we ignore it… Many people used the word “love” (just a word, merely word) to express it, hope everyone would learned how to show true love..

  • Sakthi November 28, 2012, 5:20 am

  • Aditya November 16, 2012, 1:13 pm

    Hi all, I have read this story and also the comments from so many of you, I would like to tell that love is great but causes pain if we fail to get it just because we may have choosen the wrong person to love (who may not even worth or love).

    One universal lover is GOD and mother who cares for our love. GOD’S love, mother’s love is the true love so please always go for it! and one more thing: “love them who love you to be happy in your life”

  • Arokia November 14, 2012, 9:41 am

  • Gina October 29, 2012, 9:21 pm

    Yes! LOVE is always there waiting for us to let it in into oneself, yet we mislook it by the circumstances from the environment that our minds are looking for a temporary lives not knowing that LIFE is too short to waste. So take back the TIME being wasted. LOVE like you’ve never been hurt before and live a LIFE like its your last chance….God bless

    Time is so kind, all the questions you have from the past and today about why everything is happening to you esp. when you get depressed? will be answered sooner or later. All we have to do is to wait.

  • Christy August 15, 2012, 5:48 pm

    Love is the most beautiful gift which a human being can enjoy. Because to love is nothing, to be loved is something. To love and to be loved is everything……….

    Enjoy that gift to love and to be loved….because force can make everyhting possible in this world but it cannot create a single drop of love in anyone’s heart.

  • Santosh Kumari July 29, 2012, 6:43 am

    It’s true that love is a great feeling and nothing can beat love but when one is ditched this is the one which gives more pain.

  • Rashmi July 29, 2012, 4:43 am

    We memorize this in our school activity =)

  • Jhonson July 11, 2012, 2:15 am

    The story is good for reading but the true fact is that love only goes who are lucky enough to get it. Sometimes it only gives pain…..

    So prefer not to wish for a thing which you know that it cannot be yours!!!
