What is love?

image

What does love mean
After the initial giggles and butterflies?

What does love mean
Besides a huge emotional upheaval
That changes one’s life?

What does love mean
Besides the pain of separation
And joy of reunion?

What does love mean
Besides laughter and happy times?

It means I’ll love you despite your shortcomings
Because I have those too

It means I’ll hold you when you cry
Because that time will come

It means I’ll walk along side you on the stony path
Life is full of those

It means I’ll catch you when you fall
Because you might

It means I’ll sometimes put you before myself
That I won’t get my way each time

It means I’ll problem solve and compromise
That I’ll be your companion for life

Love mean I’ll work on our relationship each day
Because love needs nourishment

Love means we will walk this path together
Hand in hand, side by side

Blessed!

My spontaneity
His planning ability

My fiery nature
His cool water ways

My excitement and laughter
His calm and composure

My ability to get lost
His ability to know the way

His wit and charm
My laughter and delight

His vision of the future
My admiration

His ability to grow and transform
My amazement and wonder

His genuine nature
My happiness

My strengths, his strength
Complement each other

My half, his half
Make a whole

My love, his love
Create magic!
The impossible becomes possible
The closed door opens

My suffering, his suffering
Intertwined
His patience
Like none other I have seen

Blessed to have found
His love
Blessed to serve with him!
