What is love?
What truly defines lovers, soul mates or flames 🔥?
So, after 6 years of being divorced, again… Will
Say, I really don’t know, except my soulmate will
Look like Jesus, act like Jesus and will love like
My Messiah. He who loves me unconditionally
Is he, the one who is me. I won’t have to be fat,
Skinny, blonde, brunette, talk a certain way, say
What only he would utter, Nor would I have to
Become their idea of their perfect mate. And,
Visa-Versa. For true love is kind, and it sees no
Flaws such as Weight, hair, wrinkles, crinkles,
Pimples nor profession. Love does not think of
What it can gain by the other person, nor what
It can steal of their heart. Love walks next to you,
And not in front, nor behind. Love doesn’t control
The TV remote, nor insist on roast beef with potatoes
At night. No, love is thankful and is appreciative
Of the friendship that it has gained, when we joined Hands.
Love doesn’t insist on conjugal rights, and It
too, accepts rejection with a smile, as it does not take
Things personally for it, too, has rejected. Love does not
Get it’s feelings hurt, nor play games with a heart
Love doesn’t keep a record of the fact that I failed
To hug them or love them one Friday night 2 weeks
Ago, and it holds my hand when I cry, and it makes me
Laugh on rainy days. It bakes cookies when I don’t
Want to. It also makes the spaghetti and cleans up,
Afterwards. It sighs when a bird dies. It calms a
Whimpering dog. Love NEVER kicks a dog.
It tames wild beasts with love. It loves my
Animals, my children. And I love, Loves too. Love,
Loves my family in all the dysfunction and gay children
And all the drama of car accidents and comas, and
Deaths and sadness, tears and melancholia that resides In my heart.
And, I don’t have to be a nurse any longer,
Because Love understands that sometimes, I too, must
Be nurtured. And this describes my soul mate and flame,
He is Jesus….
