love is


love is
staying strong, showing courage, through grief and pain
if they might gain more strength and courage by watching you

love is
putting your own needs on hold
if they are cold from seeds of discouragement, pain, dark clouds of rain

love is 
a gift to their pride, giving them a reason to help
it may be your gift of the season, even if it's easier to do it yourself

love is
not giving advice when advice should be heeded
instead, love with your eyes, and just be there if needed

For Frank's Contest: Love Is

    Love means so many things to people and yet to some it gives inspiration. I loved your polished thoughts on love Carrie. It was indeed a pleasure to peruse this evening back here in the tropical Caribbean.

    Always a step above Carrie--btw, I hope your daughter is well--I'm sure with your love and family everyone is lifted. It's now 9 years since my daughter lost her husband and it still tugs at her heart and always will. They say that time heals but, as you say here in more than one line, love is very powerful!
