    I am the feeling u get deep inside
    when u think of those things that make you smile
    I am the thing that u miss when u are all alone
    the anticipation of a ring from your silent phone
    I am the anxiety felt as each moment slowly creeps by
    until the time we can see each other again,
    who am I?

    I am what u desire but also what u fear
    u long to have me but u are afraid when i am near
    I am sometimes so difficult to try and understand
    in fact some people never discover exactly who I am
    I fill u with happiness but I can also make you cry
    I can change your whole world
    who am I?

    I am free of charge yet there is a price you must pay
    if u choose to keep me and not let me fade away
    I am honest and giving patient and true
    I hope that one day life will allow me to get next to u
    I can not force u to accept me no matter how hard I try
    I sense that u want me and need me u ask "who am I?"

    I am always there through no matter what or whatever
    when things are good I'm great when they are bad I am better
    when shared between us nothing else can compare
    when cultivated in sincerity I'll always be there
    I'm not from around here I was cast down from above
    if u are still wondering who I am,
    I go by the name of LOVE
