Love . . . .

It's universal
and knows no bounds
it has infinite power to change lives
does not divide . . . but multiplies
it lives within all of us
and is not something you can keep just for yourself
strong, yet so fragile
and should be nothing but unconditional
it's an expression of yourself
and being open to the expression of others
it represents compassion and affection
and when used appropriately it is . . . colorblind
supporting, yet not overbearing
 a basic human need
and a deep spiritual connection in the depth of your soul
understanding and forgiving
although sometimes it's complicated
it has a unique ability to stretch the heart
 patient and kind
definitely not boastful
one huge requirement is acceptance
and it should include random acts of kindness
sometimes, it just feels like and unexplainable mystery
a feeling that is hard to define
it's sharing, believing and dreaming
and it endures all, hopes all, and bears all things
it is spoken in different languages all over the world
and in unselfishly expressed actions
it hurts when that special someone doesn't feel it back
something that can make you laugh and cry at the same time
there is no age limit
you feel this when you genuinely care for someone
a parent, a child, a friend
but, let's also not keep it from strangers
sometimes it's scary
our words put into action
it can be passionate and romantic
and it will have its highs and lows
sometimes sadness and tears will come with it
songs are written about it
it is expressed in our art
and millions of words have been spoken about it
the bible says to do this to our neighbors as we would do unto ourselves
it may not make the world go around, but it's a really good place to start
and is something no one should ever be without
it seems to be one of the most motivating emotions know to man...

It's called LOVE and I hope it spreads like wildfire!

I {heart} you,
