3 (who?)
Love isn't just the warm feeling in your heart
It's not just longing to be together, when apart
It's not the kiss bestowed upon the lips;
or the touching of his fingers on your hips
It's not the feelings felt at night when you're far too busy to sleep;
or the warm body beside you as you drift off, counting sheep
Love is much much deeper than the feelings and the touch
It's the decision to press on when being together seems too much
It's when you're angry and you feel the need to yell and call him names
Or the times when you are serious and he's busy playing games
It's the shattering of heart when he lies out of shame;
And the moment when it's you who he decides to blame
It's the warm wrap of arms when he says he's oh so sorry
The time when he's at work and the house is solitary
It's when he tries so hard and you tell him he did good
When you feel down and he puts you in a better mood
Love is not a cup of tea or creamy mug of coffee
It's the touch of fingers entwined in yours softly
It's more soothing than the sweetest song
And more tiring than ten years long
It's longer than a lifetime and shorter than we desire
It's solid like ice and intense like the hottest fire
When you feel like you are failing when you try so hard to please
It's the beauty in your effort that he manages to see
When he tells you he loves you and you don't doubt it for a minute
when he looks you in the eyes and the every emotion is in it
It's so much better than a dinner of five stars
It's even more than makeup and shining cars
It's sitting on the couch in Pjs and watching DVDs
Popping popcorn and talking through all the scenes
It's doing dishes side by side and flicking water in his face
It's running up the stairs when chores turns into high speed chase
When you jump onto your bed to escape a full on tickle war;
and squirming when he pins you down and you have to beg and plead no more
When you feel a fuzzy feeling way deep down inside your heart
Remember that's just one percent; love isn't feeling, it's art
