My Definition Of Love


You ask me
What is love?
This is such a big question
Definitions vary from person to person
He says love is a that feeling
she says love is kind
You say love is gentle
Some say love is something strong that never wrinkles
Philosophers have their definition for love
Psychologists have their definition for love
Scientist have theirs
Pastors have theirs
Counselors have theirs
Everyone has a specific definition for what love is
Bring all these definitions together and it never satisfies me
So what is my definition? o
I have searched for words, found words but none was enough
To fully get what I want i have to die and face rebirth
but...
There is only one word that can summarize it all
No one else can find it at all
My definition for love would be...
Love is........................
Fill that with her name, that's my definition for love
