What does the word ‘love’ mean to us?
How do we express it each day?
Connotations are not just romantic,
we reflect love in our unique way.
Parental love is powerful –
supportive, protective, ongoing.
We love through wins and losses
as we watch our offspring growing.
Grandparent love is special,
we didn’t know we could love that much.
It’s a mutual, endearing bond
which starts with our first touch.
We love our friends and associates
who are there for us each day –
people we can rely on
when things are not going our way.
We may love our job or career.
It’s what we do but not who we are.
It vibrates through our talents and skills
and becomes part of our memoir.
Love of nature is important
appreciating all that’s around –
wondrous plants, trees, birds and animals
which all over earth abound.
Express love every way you can
to everyone you know or meet.
Love is the most powerful tool we have
and it makes our lives complete.
Happy Valentine’s and every day
