Someone asked me my definition of love the other day; I’d given an off-the-cuff reply but then realized I had never really thought about what it is to me – I just feel what I think is love. So I delved and got these below. I may not be adept in every aspect yet, but surely I’ll get better with every step.
Inexplicable attraction and
It is acceptance without judgment
That breathes life and renews hope
It is a listening ear, a protective embrace
A tempered temperament of trust, faith and grace
It remains steadfast amidst despair
And guides us out from darkness’ lair
Love gives without reason
It wants nothing to its name
Except perhaps a greater wisdom
In higher places it will bring.
