How can I answer what is love
it's part hope, part apparition?
For what it truly is, kind of
simply defies definition.

Have you ever felt so alive
that it was almost too extreme?
And giving in to passion's drive
have you ever pursued a dream?

Have you ever received a kiss
that left you dancing on a cloud?
And filled with spontaneous bliss
have you ever laughed way too loud?

Have you ever floated on air
or felt warm and gooey inside?
And when strangers just smile and stare
have you ever near burst with pride?

Have you ever felt fully whole
falling head over heels in love? 
And felt such bliss within your soul
that it rivals heaven above?

Have you ever felt like crying
when someone special didn’t show?
And if it feels like you're dying
you won't ask what is love... you'll know.

Hello Emile!! A radiant write about "What Is Love." (I like your technique here of posing a question at the very beginning of each stanza.) Excellent Work!! Cheers, Gary
