A poem about love to make you feel happy:)

“How do you know that you have fallen in love?”

“When you know, you know.”


The funny thing is, you don’t always know. 

Sometimes love is right there in front of you,

And you are just to ignorant to see it. 


Sometimes you think you are in love, 

But it's really just hate disguised as false happiness,

Trying to creep it's way into your heart. 


Love can be the thing that sets your heart aflame and gives you butterflies, 

Or it can be the thing that makes you finally want to calm down and just be. 


Everybody falls in love in different ways. 

Sometimes all at once, tumbling quickly down the rabbit hole.

Or sometimes it happens slowly, when nothing turns into something.


Love can happen to all people.

Men, women, children,

Grandmas and grandpas and aunts and uncles and anyone.


True love is pure, good, and timeless. It is ever growing and changing.

There is no such thing as a wrong kind of love. 


It isn't bound by stupid social norms. 

It isn't just between a man and a woman, a mommy and a daddy.

Men can love men, women can love women, people can love people.


Love will always find a way to break through and show up and exist.

Love has been here since the dawn of time, and will be here forever, 

Until the last breath of the last human is taken.


So find your love and hold them close, and tell them that you love them, 

Because now you know you know
