What is love


Love is what remains after

It’s been used for the umpteenth time

Like an old rag, rinsed out, squeezed,

And still gets it clean.

Love is the hard work,

the long haul,

Long after the spit and polish

no longer retains its shine.

Love is present regardless

of recognition or thank you.

Love is a lifetime!

no ego, no strings, no conditions.

Love is so easy when all is good,

when the shit hits the fan

Love is what stays the night,

like a lighthouse guides you to a safe port

Love was once upon a time, about long embraces and passionate kissing

about physical attraction, about frivolity and joy.

love is the only way,

Love is the glue

That can mend the broken shards of this world!
