Love Is... - Poem by Pene Burkey

Bending down to get their glove,
Not thinking of yourself...above.

Giving those who need...a ride;
Walk not in front but at their side.

Just to lend a listening ear
May lift someone that's sad...to cheer.

On your visit to their home
Read to them a timeless poem.

Offer help to those in need;
Love is shown by selfless deed.

Give to those who can't repay;
Truly this is love's own way.
