Love Actually Love

There is a difference
Between knowing youíre loved
And personally feeling loved
And in reality, being loved

Love is a touch
Itís a hand squeeze
Itís a shoulder rubbing
Itís a gentle lifting of your chin
A drying of your eyes
A mopping of your brow
Itís a hug from behind
Unexpected hands round shoulders

Love is a look
You can see it in their eyes
No need to wash the windows
That gentle smile, sometimes
That beaming smile of happiness
Just directed towards you
Love is eye to eye contact
With eyes that smile

Love is a hug
A long and warm hug
Teddy Bear hugs are best
Itís a cuddle
Itís a snuggle
Love is an embrace
Unencumbered by sexual thoughts
love doesnít equal Lust

Love is a word
Love is a whisper
Itís all about the crack
Itís about conversation
Itís about joking and laughing
Enjoying each others company
Conversing can be serious
But needs the occasional nob gag

Love is not just a feeling
Love is a knowing
Loving is proactive
Never taken for granted
It Cares
It supports
It forgives
Encouraging positive outcomes

Love is a vital fuel
That runs the engine
Motivates avoiding inertia
Running out of fuel can be fatal
A daily top-up is necessary
Without its fuel
Your vehicle becomes
Like a clown car
Bits forever falling off
Until it seizes

Running on vapours
Like working from memories
Is lonely and never good
Love is a tandem
Love requires a pillion passenger
Love is not a dish for one
We all need somebody to love
For those who donít have anyone
Love becomes dark
It becomes the dark destroyer
Laying waste to its victims

Love is necessary for life itself
Death falls heavily on the unloved
