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
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
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?”
