Can love be unconditional?

Can love be unconditional,
or is it just a word,
belying our reality;
a goal forever yearned?

When there are no conditions,
it means there are no rules,
no expectations, hopes, or dreams;
no outcome can be called.

Whatever stands within the now,
is perfect for all time,
for if it’s not then we demand,
some change we have in mind.

To know ourselves so very well,
the conscious and below,
is limited in everyone;
desires would have it so.

And never more than when we love,
or care, or wish to help,
the wishes will be waiting;
they are our deepest Self.

Perhaps it is enough to love,
whatever form it takes,
accepting that we will have needs;
conditions that we make.
