The Meaning of Love

Love isn’t always romantic.
Love isn’t always easy,
But it’s not always a challenge, either.
Love can be cruel,
Unkind, and underestimated.
Love seeks understanding.
Love is full of doubt,
And it is not.
Love seeks to make things right.
It exists from day one.
It comes with fear,
It can lead to confusion,
And it isn’t always obvious.
Love carries on when life gets hard,
And allows for second chances.
Love comes in many forms,
Reaches great distances,
And fills in the silent moments.
Love means so much more than we know.
