Love is…

Her little face upon the pillow, soundly sleeping, 

Mum’s warm hugs,

The memory of Dad’s pasta,

Beach walks with Blackie,

Unexpected visits from nieces and nephews,

Sharing lives with friends.

Love is…

Cranky at the dishes and cooking every day,

Cringing at my harsh words,

Holding hands with Little One in the dark,

Cuddling my sick puppy,

The heartache of tenderness past,

Yearning for someone no longer here.

Love hurts,

Love embraces,

Love is rarely smooth and often ordinary,

But for glimpses.
