Love Is

Love isn’t roses or candy hearts,

It isn’t sentimental verses or moonlit walks,

Love is tenderness in the face of bitter anger,

It’s listening when you don’t have time.

Love isn’t fuzzy feelings or fickle emotions,

It isn’t diamonds or fingers intertwined,

Love is laying your dreams at another’s feet,

It’s daily sacrifice, not momentary escape;

Love is sweat and blood and tears,

Love accepts rejection without complaint;

Love is the cross.
