What Is Love?

What is love?
Please tell me what love is,
is it a feeling
that comes from deep within;
is it a desire;
a longing from the inside,
or an attraction
That captures the mind?

Is it a concern;
a closer caring heart,
a consolation
wiping tears bringing a smile;
or a sympathy that
empathizes a hurting spirit?

Is it a sunshine,
gives hope to a dying soul;
is it a faith-
give promise for a tomorrow;
or is a favor,
Calls on you when rejected?
Please tell me.

    A smoothly penned verse...crisp, tight structural movement affords your audience an eye-pleasing read...One suggestion if I could be so bold...When employing a wrap-around style of linage, meaning, one line that
    continues onto the next as it is still the same thought/sentence from the prior line..., you need not capitalize the first letter of thenext line unless the prior line completed your thought/sentence, in which case, as you know, a period is required, and, then yes, you would begin the next line witha capitalization...BTW: This is NOT a requirement...some writers always capitalize the first letter of each line of their work instinctively, however in the case of your above work, and its' prose-like flavour, it's just my opinion that by capitalizing at the onset of each line that you are aesthetically breaking-up a sentence before it is complete....And think about it, Meda... if you were writing a letter to a friend, would you capitalize the first letter of each line? ... I'm sure you wouldn't. However, there is no definitive standard poetic/prosaic rule here...Structure and alignment is up to what the Author thinks suits their work best...Either way, you have talent, and I enjoyed this piece very much...Good Luck...~FjR~
