Love is not a sound

love is not a sound.
love is an action.
love is a smile at your child,
as she walks into the room.
love is a hug for someone
who is hurting inside.
love is a helping hand
to a physically challenge person.
love is giving a gift to someone
who doesn’t expect it.
love is cooking a special meal
for your husband
to show that you care.
love is giving of your time
to those who don’t have time left.
love is lending an ear to those
who just need you to listen.
love is paying-it-forward to those
who cannot pay it back.
love is rescuing a person
from injustice and bullying.
love is saving an animal 
from the hands of abusers.
love is a verb and not only a noun.

Although it may not be a sound, vibrations can be felt so strongly, it can be deafening when negativity is around...Enjoyed your poem, Laurette...All the best to you
