Love should be soft
Love should be kind
Love should show up in the dark to bring you light
Love should be a call away
Love should be a friendly voice
Love should be a laugh
Love should be a walk in the park on a rainy day
Love should be acceptance
Love should be your green grass, your glass half full
Love should be understanding
Love should be patient
Love should be reassuring
Love shall not fade, but will grow with time
Love should help pick up your pieces, not break them
Love should just work
Love should not hurt
Love should flow
Love should flourish
But mostly, Love, You will be there when I need you the most.
Love will choose you, without you having to choose it. Love is not instant or a sign staring you in the face saying ” I love you”. Love takes time. Love stays around through the sticky and uncomfortable moments of life and turns them into a positive. Love grows over time to create a bond that will last forever. A bond that will accept everything you have gone through and meets you where you are , however messy that place may be. Love is a strength that doesn’t go away although time may have passed and things in life change. Love will just be there regardless, with open arms wanting to step in and help. Love will be picking up the broken pieces with you to fit them back together again. The way love looks will not be the same to everyone, but the way love feels should be. Love can go away for a while, but it will always come back to its home, because when love surrounds you, it doesn’t always have to be present; you will just know it’s there.
That is what I believe love is to be.
Always, with love.
