Why does a true love ... ???

The sages tell us that this is one of the higher orders of love, and I wonder if they may indeed be right.. Most people already love their children in this way.
But, could we not, gradually, try to extend this kind of acceptance to other persons in our lives? For the more that we can bring acceptance into our lives, even in a small way, the closer we come to understanding true love.

Why can't we find
Feelings so gentle their power mightn't smother
Lavished onto one but not reflected to the other
Maybe caring mirrored but not to awe-worthy perfection
Why does a true love flow in only one direction?

Where did it go
Mystery so shrouded that we cannot pierce its veil
Magic only to be found in fanciful kids' tale
Fires of forever but requited with rejection
Why does a true love flow in only one direction?

I pound my fist
In wonder, was there a sign I missed
Some clue as to why you don't return my kiss

Leaving me lost in heart-aching perplexion
With a love that burns true ...... but not in both directions
