When you say "love" it seems like you are speaking of "acceptance" (embracing and not judging).
"Within the context of the lover however, it is not seen as sacrifice, rather the greatest joy is giving oneself up for the beloved, just like a cloud gives itself up to bring rain to its beloved earth."
Reality is not love. Reality is existing of many tangible things and movements/interactions and it is us who label certain interactions between two things as "love", "hatred", etc. but this is not a "thing" it is an interaction (a happening - a verb).
The cloud does not give itself up to bring rain - the cloud IS rain, the gas comes back down as liquid and then evaporation happens and it rises up as steam (gas - cloud) once again. It is a cycle, but if you want to call the cycle "love" then that is an emotional - reactive perspective.
You say attachment "hurts" and there is no "lack" in love, but "love" is another concept that people cling on to and when it is not showing in reality then it seems to hurt, so , to cling to an attachment whether it be a concept (love, joy, etc) or person (lover, etc.) will cause suffering. Ironically, As a person just "Be" there will arise peace/relaxation which will lessen the angry/hateful interactions between others. And then there will be peace/love without it ever having to be forced (as an active action - but a naturally arising action).
