If love is sharing,
Always being by someone's side.
If love is giving
Knowing the joy of living
A deep down feeling of pride.
If love is heart thumping,
Never knowing quite what to expect.
If love is yearning,pleasing
Yet treating another with respect.
If love is tears and laughter
Cuddles, and what comes after
That feeling of indescribable sweetness.
If love is quiet and content,
Time well spent
An overall sense of completeness.
If love is wanting,yet undemanding,
Tries to see another's point of view.
If love little tussles and fights
Then putting things to rights
The way only lovers can and do.
If love is growing old together
Commitment from the heart forever,
Being bound to someone yet feeling free,
In life the passion and the pain,
Yet through it the constant gain
Then let LOVE be for all our destiny.
