I have…we all have…
you think you know the meaning and definition of love, but you haven't found it until you have found yourself...

I have…we all have…
I’ve felt it, been in it, prayed for it to find me, cried because it left.
I’ve seen it in a smile, felt it in a touch, stamped on it as if it were trash and only regretted the fact after it was too far gone away.
I have been too much a part of it that I didn’t even know it existed and have even mistaken it for greed and envy.
I have experienced it in a moment of isolation, in a minute of despair, in a day of grief, in a week of loneliness, in a month of ignorance, a year of silence and a lifetime of not really knowing why it even exists.
It has played tricks on me and I have in turn played many tricks on it.
I have smelt it in a room, tasted it in a kiss, seen it in an embrace and thought it in a dream.
It has come in many shapes and forms, in so many sizes and places.
It appears when least expected, leaves when least appropriate and has the most unbelievable connection with the senses.  It creates memories, nightmares and heartache.
It is always present although our mind and soul doesn’t always recognize its value.
If I could speak to it I would ask why it has hurt me so.  Why it has created such an impression and why it is so inconsistent.  Always coming and going as if it has the right to confuse me to such a degree that I don’t even question its whereabouts or why it chose to just show up uninvited.
But with all that it is and all that I have come to know of it, I will never turn it away.  I will always cherish the memories it has stored in my soul, remembered the times I just didn’t believe existed and live for the moments it proves me wrong.
It is love, and it is real.
