DEFINE LOVE...

 

A phoenix is a mythical bird with a tail of beautiful gold and red plumage (or purple and blue, by some sources). It has a 600-800 year life-cycle, and near the end the phoenix builds itself a nest of cinnamon twigs that it then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again. The new phoenix is destined to live as long as its old self. In some stories, the new phoenix embalms the ashes of its old self in an egg made of myrrh and deposits it in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis (sun city in Greek). The bird was also said to regenerate when hurt or wounded by a foe, thus being almost immortal and invincible — it is also said that it can heal a person with a tear from its eyes and make them temporarily immune to death; It is a symbol of fire and divinity.

Love = state of extreme pleasure usually versus a matching soul...
it is real love if it isn't forced.. it is real love if take all of your senses and make you forget about everything else..
it is love if it make you suffer, if it make you happy, if it make you cry.. it is trust, it is sacrifice, it is life, it is passion... it's us.. it's part of us..
Love is a dream.. sometimes a good one, sometimes it is painfull..

Love is also accepting that in a relationship love could end...

Love, Love, Love.... Define it!

Yes, love covers all kinds of emotions...

Does it happen to have to do with your relationship with your hubby? I am just wondering at the reason of your posting...
