Love is when you smile at me through your pain
Just to comfort me and say you are okay.
Love is when you reach for me in your sleep
Just when I lay there wide awake
Gently pulling me into your arms
Tucking me away in your warm embrace.
Love is when I hear from you
Just when I am missing you from miles away.
Love is when I catch you looking at your ring
Smiling quietly taking it all in.
Finishing each others sentences
Sensing each others thoughts
All my life I wondered if I would know that kind of love at all.
I am glad I didn’t give up hope all along
Now I look at you and smile as I realize
Love is to be loved by you through it all.
