What Is Love


Love is not a science
Nor a story of self-reliance

It does not lay claim
To those who place blame

More than a perfect first date
Or what was once thought to be fate

Love is sadness in a mother's eyes
As far away her son flies

Dropping it all on a dime
For a friendship impossible to define

Love never loses sight
Of what it knows to be right

Impossible to ignore
Like waves crashing upon the shore

It surprises us all
Like a child's first steps from a crawl

It will break us down
But only then can it be found
