What Is Love?
Author: Ryan K


What exactly is love?
Is it a feeling given to us from the maker above?

Is it a feeling of happiness all the time?
Or is it handing a friend a dollar when they only needed a dime?

Is it crying when you are going to be apart?
Or is it that still small voice living deep down in your heart?

Is it the way you feel when you are together?
Or is it when you are away, and the moments you treasure?

Is it how many times you say I love you?
Or is it showing that those words are sincerely true?

Is it stressing and rushing to do what you think love takes?
Or is it stopping and watching the smiles and happiness it creates?

Is it going to the church and saying I do
Or is it making those words pure, holy and true?

Love was shown to us through Our Heavenly Father above.
Now go out and be the kind of person who portrays that kind of love!

ill tell what love is something that breaks your heart into little tiny pieces, love breaks promises, love doesnt stick around when you want it to, love leaves you alone just out of the blue w/ no reason given to you. LOVE SUX! you may not agree but i really dont care cause im just giving you my opinion NO HARD FEELINGS! oh ya this was a really good poem if you believe in all that lovey dovey shit!
