What is Love?


What is love?
An expression of the desire
A feeling that makes me happy each day
And lifts my soul higher
What is love?
A feeling I can not control
To like to have
Or to have to like
I just don’t know
What is love?
It has nothing to do with sex
For I may be in love with a wretch on the street
Or that con man who sends me fake text
Where’s thou passion?
When there is no gold
Or the luxury to afford
In a life
And confidence is not that bold
A woman’s emotions may be uncontrollable like the wind
So tame that unbridled mare
And subject it to your affection
For love and patience
