Characteristics of Love

Characteristics of Love

A Poem by A Christine

March 2009

Love is like chasing butterflies in the middle of April;
Exciting yet subtle, soft, yet loud.

Love is like sleeping behind a waterfall in the Everglades;
Soothing and comforting, yet magnificent and rare.

Love is like staying up late to dance in the pouring rain;
Fun, free, and very unique.

Love is like watching the sunset above the Rocky Mountains;
Beautiful, and comes in many colors.

Love is not going day without thinking about you;
Your eyes, your smile, your smell.

Love is closing my eyes and seeing deep into yours.
Love is enjoying every minute spent together.

Love is wishing you'd come back, everyday,
Hating the days when you're gone.

Love is more than just a feeling inside;
It's..... More of a sensation you get.

Love isn't something to be shared like a toy,
Love is something given to a deserving candidate.

Someone, like you.
