Love Is…

Written by: Raina Hutchins

Love, I thought was meant to be
A word that makes you smile
Love, I thought was meant to be 
A feeling so worthwhile
Love, I thought was meant to make you laugh
Not make you cry
Love, I thought was meant to say hello 
Not say goodbye
Love is meant to leave you 
Feeling happy every day 
Love is meant to guide you 
So you never lose your way 
Love should be the dream 
From which you never want to wake
Love should be the person 
Whom you never will forsake
Love should be the one you lean upon
And your best friend
Love should be the reason for beginning
Not the end
Love’s a word I used to say
But now it’s in the past
Love to me is just a feeling 
Never meant to last
Love to me is just a word
Reminding what I had
Love is just a word that leaves me 
Lost, alone and sad
Love to me is make believe
A dream that can’t be real
Love just leaves a bleeding heart
A wound you cannot heal
One-day love is everything 
You ever dreamed would be
Then suddenly it leaves you
Saying “I” instead of “We”
