The Beauty of Wuan

Love is when she wakes up at 0545 every morning to cook your meals before going to work. Love is when she goes out of her way to get you your favourite hawker food. Love is when she sees something nice she thinks of you. Love is when she stands steadfast by you while everyone else forsakes you. Love is when she tells you she loves you and you see the honesty and passion in her eyes. Love is when she does not mind the inconveniences of going places with you on your wheelchair. Love is when she disregards the rude stares from strangers because she is with a disabled man. Love is when she knows that she will have to sacrifice a lot more than she will ever get from this relationship and she loves you all the same. Love is when she holds the sky up for you as the world around you is falling apart. Love is when she is willing to do anything to make you happy. Love is when she is the person you know for sure you want to grow old together with. Love is beautiful when it is with Wuan. Happy Valentine’s Day darling.

    Whatever our hands touch—
    We leave fingerprints!
    On walls, on furniture,
    On doorknobs, dishes, books,
    As we touch we leave our identity.

    Oh please where ever I go today,
    Help me leave heartprints!
    Heartprints of compassion
    Of understanding and love.
    Heartprints of kindness
    and genuine concern.

    May my heart touch a lonely neighbor
    Or a runaway daughter,
    Or an anxious mother,
    Or, perhaps, a dear friend!

    I shall go out today
    To leave heartprints,
    And if someone should say
    “I felt your touch,”
    May that one sense be…YOUR LOVE
    Touching through ME.

  2. Love is beautiful especially with the one that you truly love.
    Like the Bible says…”Love is patient. Love is kind.” Wuan fits that description perfectly.
    Happy V’day! 🙂

  4. Koda,

    Thank you.


    I think it is the other way. I am a lucky man to have Wuan. Thanks.

    :). Thank you.

    Happy belated Valentine’s Day to you too.

  5. Peter: Wuan indeed is a special woman – like I’ve told you, true love looks beyond the physical and into the heart.

    Wuan did that, and loved you so much (I refrain from the word anyway and despite) and gave you her everything, so wuan-derfully.

    Happy Valentines day to you both!

  6. Justine,


    Love is truly Wuanderful. 🙂
