    Love is
    the blood flowing through one's heart
    the rising of the sun in the east, the sun setting in the west
    Buddha...Jesus..Jehova..Allah...
    the breastmilk flowing into the mouths of newborns,
    underpaid doctors saving the lives of spirits on the brink of death,
    the knowledge received by the youth from the wisdom of the ones who came before us,
    the air that fills our lungs,
    the water that flows through sterile lands giving it life
    the joining of sperm and egg
    family barbeques
    four page letters to your man upstate
    hangin' wit your boys on da block
    sexin your man late at nite...wakin up early to cook him breakfast
    cursin your kids' teacher out for givin them a bad grade
    nostalgic records playin on your father's record player
    penny candy and hop skotch
    socks on cold feet
    a girdle under a little black dress
    forty ounces and marijuana
    mountain climbing without a harness
    a field of sunflowers in a plain of weeds
    lettin your mother in law sleep in your third bedroom
    the smell of sweet potato pies seducing the air
    staying up late..not saying anything...
    poems by Sonia Sanchez
    tearful brown eyes with a smile
    an upopened bottle of 1787 Chateau Lafite
    a bowl of icecream while on a diet..
    a kiss just because
    putting yourself first...
    pen to paper...
    LoVe Is LiFe...
    LiFe Is SwEeT

    Nice...very nice. This is what I would call "unadulterated, uncompromising, unconditional love." :D

    :thanks: for sharing your thoughts of love with us.
