  • Love isn’t the poetry you recite
    Love isn’t the prose you narrate
    For words may move the heart
    But the soul, it cannot sedate


    Love isn’t the idea you believe
    Love isn’t the dream you share
    For thoughts may reveal your mind
    But it doesn’t tell, you care


    Love isn’t the gifts you buy
    Love isn’t the flowers you offer
    Things may fade with time
    Love is what shines forever


    Love isn’t in your touch
    Love surely isn’t in the kiss
    For these may allure a while
    But they lack the love’s bliss


    Love isn’t what you think is
    Love isn’t what you can control
    For it's not a work of the mind
    But an affair of the soul


    Love isn’t for the heart to understand
    Love isn’t for the mind to imbibe
    Love is for one soul to experience
    And another to catch the vibe
