What do I Really Want in a Relationship, In Love, Is Actually Nothing

The Valentine's Day is coming in a few hours. It "was" a day to remember St. Valentine, which later turns to a day to cherish love, then a day for businesses to earn enormous dough.

Nevermind that.

Valentine's, if it is a day to cherish love, then maybe we should look at what love really is. But this is too hard even for the most experienced lovers. So, maybe next time.

For me, for a relationship to work, then love must be there. But for the love to continue to burn, it requires more than just a few candles on the Valentine's. It requires us to know what our other half really wants. What our other half really need.

My love often lament that she can never get a gift that i really like. And that i can never tell her what i had wanted.

But in reality, i wanted nothing that money can buy. I don't need anything that i already cannot get. There is no gift that a shop can offer me.

What i wanted is for my love to be beside me all the time.

For me to feel comfortable in her embrace.

For me to feel at home all the time i am with her.

For her to understand my feeling.

When i am happy, i just wanted to tell her and let her know.

When i am sad, all she need to do is just to pull me into her bosom, no words needed.

there is nothing that you need to give me, except to be with me, without condition, but with love.

i really, really, don't need anything else, because all that i really need, you have given me...

and love from you, is all i need.

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone...hopefully you have a Love to cherish, for eternity..
