“¿Por qué es necesario el amor?”, le preguntó un sabio a otro.
“No lo sé, pero la soledad no es buena compañera”, respondió éste.
“¿Has sentido alguna vez como te hace estremecer por dentro la sonrisa de una
mujer?”, le preguntó de nuevo.
“Sí... ¿es eso el amor?”
“¿Has visto al sol apareciéndose tras el mar en la mañana?”
“Sí... ¿es eso el amor?”
“¿Has observado a la luna clareando la noche más oscura?”
“Sí... ¿es eso el amor?”
“¿Has apreciado la ternura de un pequeño que busca los brazos de su madre?”
“Sí... ¿es eso el amor?”
“¿Has probado el agua fresca del manantial cuando tu sed es amarga?”
“Sí... ¿es eso el amor?”
“¿Has abrazado a un amigo dejándote el alma en ello?”
“Sí... ¿es eso el amor?”
“¿Has llorado alguna vez cuando tu sueño se rompía?”
“Sí... ¿es eso el amor?”
“¿Sabes por qué entonces es necesario el amor?’
“No lo sé, pero la soledad no es siempre una buena compañera”. Concluyeron los
dos al mismo tiempo, mientras desaparecía su propia imagen del espejo.



“Why is love necessary?” asked one sage to another.
“I don’t know, but loneliness is not a good companion” came the answer.
“Have you ever felt as though the smile of a woman makes you shudder inside?”, he asked again.
“Yes… Is that love?”
“Have you seen the sun appearing behind the sea into the morning?”
“Yes… Is that love?”
“Have you watched the moon lighting up the darkest night?”
“Yes… Is that love?”
“Have you appreciated the tenderness of a baby looking for the arms of his mother?”
“Yes… Is that love?”
“Have you tasted the fresh spring water when your thirst is bitter?”
“Yes… Is that love?”
“Have you hugged a friend, putting your soul into it?”
“Yes… Is that love?”
“Have you cried at a time when your dream was breaking?”
“Yes… Is that love?”
“So, then, you know now why love is necessary?”
“I don’t know, but loneliness is not always a good companion” they both concluded, at the same time, as his reflection vanished from the mirror.
