Love Is

Love is...feeling safe, tucked in by mom..closing your eyes to the
sound of her voice..and knowing daddy is protectively close by.

Love is...that first love...the one'll never forget.  How they felt, 
how they kissed.  Your heart feels heavy when you think of them and
wonder if they still think of you.

Love is...stubborn...routine...strong...
The kind of love that survives life.  Patient when passion doesn't
work and passionate when patience doesn't...Best friend love.

Love is...just weird
We use this word to describe so many feelings, but to me in the end...
it simply means I care more about you than I do myself....

    Love is the well of emotions from which the soul draws water to quench its thirst for affection! (D.T.) Love is all this you say and more! Excellent examples of love you have given dear, Donna, and the best you kept for last! Wonderfully done as always! thank you!

    Your descriptions of love brought me to my wife's heart where most of it rests! You have written of the love at which we love another more than ourselves, I believe that is the key to a beautiful relationship, if you do that you will have a long and strong, heartfelt relationship that will last forever! You have listed a grouping of meanings of love that is so true, I was in awe of it's complexity though still in simple words! You did awesome! What a perfect poem, Great Work!!

    True love is hard to define for sure..The love we feel for another can be different from one person to another..Jesus, asked Peter did he love Him..He started off with agape' love and went down..The Greek language has words for different kinds of love..Enjoyed reading your great work today..If for a contest, it reads like a winner..I am glad that you liked my work about the hot air..I did another one called Politics..You might enjoy it also..Sara

    These are fine examples of what true love really is Donna, I especially love the last lines, about caring more about the other than oneself, I once read somewhere this is the secret recipe to a long lasting marriage, I do agree, selfless love can be very rewarding in it's own right, sending you a love filled hug, xxx
