    what is love...
    if love was a color, it would match the sparkle in your eyes
    if love had a destination it would be somewhere in the sky
    if love ever expressed itself it would be when i cried
    if ever anyone exemplified love it would be you and i

    what is love...
    if love were a smell our souls would salivate
    if my love had a goal it would be to be your best mate
    if love were impatient it would ask us why wait
    if love were not right now it would be far too late

    what is love...
    if i could caress love i wouldn’t understand how it felt
    if someone asked what love does i say it makes you melt
    if love were a challenge it would be when I have to ask for help
    if you asked me who i loved first i’d answer myself

    what is love...
    if love had an explanation i still wouldn’t understand
    if love wasn’t a connection i’d let go of your hands
    even if loved could be predicted it would never be planned
    if someone asked why i love, i say because my soul demands

    what is love...
    if love could take shape it would resemble a tear
    if your love is a whispering voice my love is a listening ear
    if love was secure then why would i fear
    if love didn’t matter i wouldn’t be here

    what is love...

    in the end...it always come down to,

    "if love didn’t matter i wouldn’t be here"

    THANKS for summing that up for me, NittyGrit.

    you know.
