Love Is

Love is genuine
When given away
To someone who
Can’t repay.
			
Love is kind
Despite the faults
That we find.

Love is unselfish,
Thoughtful, I’m told
That we wish
To be so bold.

Love is enduring 
Long-suffering 
Forgiving 
Of wayward living.

Love knows sorrow
Love knows pain
Love knows death
Yet, love remains.

Love is fragile
Like a flower;
Too little attention 
Will turn it, sour.

Love is defined in many ways,
But, the love that gives 
Stays.
