Love is . . .

1492 - Copy

Love is a kiss, a peck, and a passion.

It’s a tender touch and a vacuumed floor.

It’s a bitten tongue when being right is less important than the painful memory.

Love is a hug that warms to the middle,

and sometimes love is a hug that is just a hug and a movie.

Love is an overheard compliment and a bouquet of flowers ripped from the garden,

and it’s also a cell call to look out and see the sunset.

It’s a trip to the beach and a trip to the hospital

and it builds and tears and builds again, lasting for a lifetime–

a whole lovetime.
