Love is


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.
