 From the Heart Through the Pen

I Know What Love Is

It is something that involves
At least two people, a couple, a pair
It is something that the majority wants to share
It is what gives you great strength
Has you fighting against all odds
And at such great lengths
It is something that helps you get lost
Something that leads you blindly
Has you twisted in all directions
Makes you braver, up to any challenge
No matter what the cost
It is something that has you so
Ready willing and able
Something that makes you
Lay and play all your cards on the table
It is something that allows you
To be able to let go
Something that allows you to believe
Even if you don't really know
It is what allows you to look
Past all the faults
It is what keeps all those memories
Stored in your secret vault
It is what makes you able
To say that you're sorry
It is what let's you know
That there isn't a thing you have to worry
It is what allows you
To see the true inner beauty
It is what gives you inner peace
And what makes all truly happy
It is what makes you yearn
For just one more day
What emphasizes all that you have to say
It is what has you floating
What has you sailing, flying, soaring
What makes your life worthwhile
And no event boring
It is something that helps
Ease the fears and ease the tears
It is something they associate
When someone first appears
It is something you can feel
From a smile or a gentle touch
From your eyes, a hug, or a kiss
It is something you feel when you are apart
Because it's that special someone you truly miss
It is something that allows you to trust
Something that lets you know
That being with this person is a must
It is what conquers all
It is getting the biggest joys
Out of things so small
It is what satisfies your needs
What makes not a moment that you want to miss
It is something that is special
Something you have to give to the best
And someone who makes you that way
Don't settle for anything less
It is something that helps heal
It is something that is at its best
When it is given for real
It is something that occurs
In a short or long period of time
Something that you can miss
If you don't pay attention
To even the smallest sign
It is what makes all so right
And even the loosest relationship so tight
And now if asked I can say
I Know What Love Is
