When Love Arrives

Love is not who you were expecting, love is not who you can predict.  
Maybe love is in New York City, already asleep; 
You are in California, Australia, wide awake.  
Maybe love is always in the wrong time zone. 
Maybe love is not ready for you.  
Maybe you are not ready for love.

Maybe love just isn’t the marrying type.  
Maybe the next time you see love is twenty years after the divorce, love looks older now, but just as beautiful as you remembered.  
Maybe love is only there for a month.  
Maybe love is there for every firework, every birthday party, every hospital visit.  
Maybe love stays- maybe love can’t.  
Maybe love shouldn’t.

Love arrives exactly when love is supposed to,  
And love leaves exactly when love must.  
When love arrives, say, “Welcome. Make yourself comfortable.” 
If love leaves, ask her to leave the door open behind her.  
Turn off the music, listen to the quiet, whisper,  
“Thank you for stopping by.”


When Love Arrives, a poem by Sarah Kay & Phil Kaye
A poem I came across in the middle of windy-breezy Saturday afternoon. A poem that lingers quite long in my head and makes me have the desire to put it in my blog. A poem that I think everyone's able to relate onto. Somehow, somewhat, at some point, we probably have met our own version of 'Love'. And if you thought you haven't, well, I wish you good luck because perhaps, you have yet to meet Love.

So yeah, read it, watch the video, listen, welcome, and make yourself comfortable~
