    You’ll know it when you see it,
    that’s what they all said.

    If you live right, it will find you,
    that’s what I read.

    But now I’ve lived some,
    I’m older, more wise.

    I understand it can’t be found
    in the pages of a book,
    Or seen with the eyes.

    From what I’ve experienced
    it gets better with time.

    Like soup in a pot, or age on
    a wine.

    My life has been spent chasing after
    selfish lusts.

    One day I awoke and realized
    That “me” is gone, replaced by “us”.

    The change was subtle I didn’t feel it
    at first.

    There was no more love for the game,
    You quenched my thirst.

    You’ll know it when you see it.

    The saying is true.

    I know it.

    I see It.

    It’s love for you.
    :heart:

    Tight...great flow.

    Keep'em coming....

    If it doesn't occur naturally...effortlessly...then it's not meant to be...at that time.

    :thanks: for sharing
