Writing what love means to me

What does love mean?

What does that word mean? I think for each person it means something a bit different. To me
Love means keeping your heart soft even when life has tried to make it hard
Love means saying I am sorry only if you are if you aren't they are just words
Love means no matter what I will be here for you
Love means encouraging someone when you could just knock them down
Love means thinking of another human at times before yourself
Love requires patience
Love requires a soothing smile when the world has chipped away at you
Love requires mercy when at times you in fact deserve none
Love requires a gentle touch
Love is a watching a sunrise and seeing their eyes there beside you even if they aren't
Love is an action, a thing you do not a thing you say
Love is not afraid of the risks and would go to the ends of the earth for you if they needed
Love is giving someone a piece of your soul knowing that the right one would handle it with such care because saw it as a priceless treasure.
