The Past and The Future

Mon, 10/30/2017 - 16:31 -- CChoppy

Love is not tears

Manipulation or jeers

Nor is it lies and coercion.

Love does not hurt

Or leave you in the dirt

Face down and full of regret.

Love is not screaming

It does not leave you dreaming

Of a life that you used to remember.

Rather love is a smile

On top of a pile

Of freshly dried clothes from last night.

Love is just walking

Through snow and not talking

Because your heart needs no words to describe it.

To me, you are love

A gift from above

And the cherry on top of each day.

You brighten my life

I’ll one day be your wife

Until then, I will be here beside you.

Me
