About the close readingThere is no doubt that this text is a prose.A prose of love, the overused word whosepower has been diluted by long time ofmisuse.What’s love? what’s the true meaning oflove? Are you confused about this wordlike the author?In my opinion, love has nothing to do withwhat you are expecting to get, only with whatyou are expecting to give.
different people have different opinions on love, but thedictionary definition of love states that it is a profoundlytender, passionate affection for another person or a feelingof warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for aparent, child, or friend.love is something personal, and theres no right orwrong way to describe it.In general, love is a positive feeling. we need love.Like the author said: love can never be completelydefined; ultimately the only definition that is you own.So, try you best to gain the love, it enlivens all theliving beings; we cannot live without it .

Love has nothing to do with what you areexpecting to get----only with what you areexpecting to give----which is everything.
3. Perhaps a more refined definition would bethat "love" is wanting( but not needing) the otherperson in your life for always, because ideally Iwant to be a much better person for havingknown him. Questions for you to discuss: 1. Everyone in this world has to be independent for living.
