Definition Of Love - Poem by Elizabeth Haasch

Here I sit my dear
trying to explain to you this situation I am in.
this is now a phrase with so much meaning.
A story I wish to tell to all

I told myself I have loved before
but what do they say love is.
A longing for,
a yearning for deep passion,
deep appreciation, contentment.

Webster’s dictionary describes it as
a profoundly tender,
passionate affection for another.
A feeling of warm personal attachment
or deep affection.

Everyone has their own meaning
of this little word and I have found
my meaning of love and
it's description is nothing longer
than a three letter word.
You.
