    What's love?
    It's the sweet touch of your kiss
    as you say hello in the morning
    What's love?
    It's the smell of you on my
    shirt while I'm at work
    What's love?
    It's spending all day longing to
    see you and being greeted by your smile
    What's love?
    It's the way you hold my hand
    whilst we shop for groceries
    What's love?
    It's the way we stare endlessly into
    each others eyes over dinner
    What's love?
    It's the way you let me use you as a pillow
    even though you're as tired as I am
    What's love?
    It's waking from a bad dream and feeling
    your arms held tight around me
    What's love?
    It's when you're the first thought in the morning,
    the last at night and every though between.

    simple things have the most effect, no doubt.
    and
    where are you?!

    love is a grand
    a compassion
    a warm touch
    a gentle kiss
    sweet words whispered
    words heard
    cuddling up
    tender care
    love is lovin to love and be loved

    Love is this poem
    poetically written
    to enduce a euphoric feeling
    so all pain is lost...

    This is marvelous.

    Thanks for the compliments guys. Sorry I haven't been around. A lot has been happening in this chaotic mess I call my life, but hey, I'm going to start making time for this board again.
    I haven't written as much as I used to... feeling a little uninspired of late. But I promise to add a post this week J'hiah, btw glad u missed me :)
    Thanks for your kind words again.
    Much love
