BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: It can be said that in the theory of conceptual metaphor, the metaphors depend on the conceptual and semantic relationship ofintermediate words, which act as a tool for understanding and conceivinga kind of human understanding ofphenomena and abstractand tangible world affairs, as well. The literature on conceptual metaphor theory has various origins and destinations through which it explains the concepts of the mind to the reader in a tangible way. The main purpose of this research is to study poems of Sa’adi"s Sonnets whose field of origin or destination with the concept of "love”has been paid attention by poet.

METHODOLOGY: The research method of this research is descriptive - analytical basedon library studies and the documentation methodbased on the selection of lyric poems in which love and its semantic clusters have been paid more attention.

FINDINGS: According to studies, love has a high value and place Sa’adi"s words. Sa’adi" s view on the issue of love is a positive and very imaginative view.

CONCLUSION: The research results indicate that the conceptual metaphor of love in Sa’adi"s world view and intellectual view, which is itself derive from a conceptual system has overshadowed the structure of the poet"s mind and thought. In Sa’adi"s lyric poems, love for him isenlightening, life- giving, changeable, healing, purifying, and a restless phenomenon, not onlyrelieves the heart but alsolanguishes it, and love is a murderous robber.
