To answer the

Question of what

Is the difference

Between love and

In love think

About it thusly

Love is a feeling

An expression of

Abundance and happiness

In love is

An action it’s

A reserved sign

On a table

For two it’s

A simple promise

That with you

I choose to

Spend all my

Time far more

Than anyone else

That I love


And what if

After all the

Gifts have been

Opened after the

Explosions of laughter

Glee and surprise

There remains the

Last gift the

Last cherished gift

The smallest gift

The gift that

Went unnoticed the

Gift that patiently

Waited for its

Turn to shine

And what if

That gift had

No card to

Whom should it

Go certainly not

To those grabbing

But instead like

The gift itself

To the one

Patiently waiting simply

Because they belong

Together at last

Such is love
