English Poetry

Love Is

Love is in the corner of a smile, subtle and sharp
Love is in the note of a happy laugh, ringing out into the evening
Love is in the softness of a flower's petals, and in the morning dew
Love is in the cracks of a sidewalk, and in the thorns too
Love is in the tears trapped behind the glistening of our eyes
Love is in the gentle touch of a worn hand
Love is in the rushing of a river, powerful and strong
Love is all around, all at once, in so many different ways
Love is bigger than anything
Love is the smallest of small
Love is a single moment that lasts for a hundred years
Love is the forgotten memory of a lifetime
Love is now, and then, and tomorrow

Love is us, and we are Love
