Love.

Love.

Expressed so many ways

Shared by fam’ly, friends, lovers.

The same throughout time.

Love.

Found in discussion,

Seen in writings and photos.

A constant in time.

Love.

A comradary,

A desire to be closer,

To share one’s whole self.

Love.

To know someone’s worst,

And act like it matters not.

Peace, patience, grace, joy.

Love.

It builds up friendships,

Lays foundations for marriage,

Strengthens families.

Love.

Necessary, lacking.

Blinded by pain, lust, revenge.

Sorely sought after.

Love.

What does anyone want,

But to be loved and cherished,

Safe among loved ones?

Love.

Such a simple word,

Such a difficult lifestyle,

A truly hard choice.

Love.
