    My definition of love

    Love Is :

    Sunny afternoons on cloudy days...
    a newborn's first attempt at opening
    his or her eyes...
    3 A.M. feedings...
    endless diaper changes
    and a lifetime supply of
    "I told you so" refrains.

    It's :

    Sisterly fights ...
    brotherly bonding...
    Searching through debris laden streets
    in the middle of the night
    for a child, friend, or loved one.

    Pressing your fingertips to your lips...
    then releasing it to the sky...
    knowing your chosen one has received your touch
    throughout the Pathways of the Universe.

    Love Is:

    Him dropping off your dessert for the Tupperware Party
    because you are running late.

    Forgiving that one indiscretion ...
    and making an attempt to trust again.

    Stripping your soul to the pores...
    then having enough faith to believe
    your significant other is going to do the same.

    The connection you feel...
    whether it be across the room...
    or 3,000 miles away.

    It's :

    The look in her eyes
    as she puts her grandmother's pearls on
    for her first teen dance.

    The sweaty palms he has acquired
    while rehearsing placing that promise ring on her finger
    when he asks her to be His Girl.

    Love Is :

    Him watching a child being born
    after 18 hours of coaching you
    through the joys of Natural Childbirth...
    Even though his scars may not be visible.

    Going to the Opera
    instead of using those box seats on the 10 yard line...
    At The Super Bowl.

    Wearing stilettos to bed...
    because you know it is a hidden fantasy
    he would never ask of you.

    It is:

    Sacrificing your own pleasures
    for the benefit of another.

    Taking a chance...
    no matter how afraid you may be...
    in order to make a better life for yourself...
    and those you love.

    Love Is :

    The realization that money disappears...
    looks fade...yet the soul is the star that shines infinitely.

    The Awareness that...
    SIZE DOES NOT MATTER...
    IN ANY SHAPE OR FORM.

    It Is :

    A feeling of completeness
    because selling your soul was never an option.

    Love Is:

    Blending yours and mine
    then combining it to...
    Create Ours​
