Argument of Definition “Love” “Those Winter Sundays”, by Robert Hayden captures love as a theme in his poem. Love is an unspoken emotion that cannot be expressed in any language between a father and son. The poem reveals how a father exhibits love when he really does not know how to express it. The Father shows his love by warming up the house and shining shoes for his son. Sometimes love is displayed by a parent who does for a child not even thinking of it as a “job”. We all have taken our parents for granted at least once in our lifetime, and that is the guilt the child feels. Sometimes you don’t realize the love parents have or don’t have until you are older. This demonstrates how love is shown differently in homes and how most people would define “Love”. Love can be verbal or just in actions. The word love can be defined so many different ways. It can be very broad in its definition and meaning. Agape love is doing what is in the best interest of another. Romantic love is emotional love and friendship love is a bond existing between people who have common interest or desires. People can use it very lightly or they can show it as a very deeply. My definition of love is a very deep feeling of caring and admiration for someone. There can be so many different types and levels of love. The highest level of love is unconditional love. Unconditional love is a love you have for someone that you only want the best for him or her and do not need anything in return except their happiness. A very good example of that is a parent’s love for a child. Though this sometimes cannot be the truth for every parent; most parents have such a deep unselfish and unconditional love for their children that can only be felt for your child. Love can be felt and shared with many in a person’s life. Of course, the first example everyone thinks of is a husband and wife, or partner. There is a love for other family members in the family such as a grandparent, cousin, aunt or uncle, even a niece, etc. There is a love you have for friends, caregivers, and even pets. A love should be a special feeling you have for certain people and things in your life, not just everyone that you enjoy being around. It should be a feeling that you need to share your life with that person and care what is happing to them. The Oxford dictionary definition of love is an intense feeling of deep affection. There are so many more ways to define love. Love is one of the hardest words to define because it can mean so many different things and is a word every language uses. Love for a friend is different than a love you have for your lover or your parents. Some use love very liberally and some only share it for that special person. For instance, love can be more than just affection. It can be purely emotion, feeling, thought or willingness to an individual. Love is what you make of it and each person makes the word “love” it’s own. On the other hand, you love for different reasons and each reason will be different than the other. This definition is too narrow to understand love. Another definition of love is, “Love is a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes that ranges from interpersonal affection, emotion of a strong attraction and personal attachment. It can also be a virtue representing human kindness, compassion, and affection. It may also describe compassionate and affectionate actions towards other humans, one's self or animals” (Wikipedia). This definition of love covers a broader range of the use of the word. Romantic love is very different than a love for a parent or pet. People have the capacity to love in different ways on such different levels. This is a better definition than Oxfords, but still can be a little too broad, and loses the emotion of love in the explanation. Equally important is how psychology plays a big part in how someone gives or receives love. "People who approach their daily lives
