Love is...

when you kiss my
your red lips
flush against my tender skin.

Love is...

when you slip
that piece of gum in my
those special words
written on the

Love is...

when you hold my hand,
our hearts and minds

Love is...

waking up to see your face,

your eyes
truly windows to your soul.

Love is...

the leap of my heart
when you kiss me,
a wordless communion
taking place,
worship and devotion.

Love is...

my dear.
Always you.
