A Dictionary of Love

a-dictionary-of-love

What is love?

Does it come from above?

Well---maybe kind of.


Look it up Mama said,

I will hear these words long after I am dead.

And then she said---sound the word out---more words to dread.


Love is from the heart,

No need of a computer search to start.

Be considerate and be smart.

Love will appear on your heart’s drive,

And stay there forever---to thrive,

Communication and attention will keep it alive.


Does Love begin with a look?

You may have read that in a book,

But sometimes a look--- is the hook.


True Love is germinated,

Unlike a hard drive cannot be terminated,

But hesitation can exterminate.


Can you Love more than once?

Love does not count---when the seed it’s planted it is done.

Then it is your time to have fun.


Will I feel his Love in a kiss?

Maybe not at first,

A kiss is like a great play---essential to be rehearsed,

Practice as your lips for his---will truly thirst.

A kiss links to the heart,

To tell the mind it is it’s turn---I have done my part,

Then emotions will begin to chart.


Love is holding hands and being near,

It shines in one’s eyes---and the feeling is dear,

The beginning of Love is clear.


Will Love last forever?

It can be unending,

Love needs attending.


What if Love is broken?

Of that the Angels have spoken,

Two hearts of Love is Heaven’s token.

a-dictionary-of-love

Love’s pseudonym is infatuation,

Sort this out fast without hesitation,

It could become your damnation.


Love seeks true hearts with openness,

Filled with Love its ampleness,

Making life so copiousness.


Life without Love is a tangled knot,

Without Love you are what?

Not even a number---just maybe a spot.


Search for Love in every moment of the day,

Because someone told me---it is coming your way,

Now, what do you have to say?

Beautiful poem Purvis. You have described love in all its forms. It does need attending and can be unending. And without love we are nothing, not even a number, just maybe a spot. Good work. Thanks for sharing
