What is love?
Is it the glowing embers of a fire slowly dying
Or the icy breath on a winter morning
Is love the sweat on your palm
Or the shakiness in your voice
Is it the pink in a newborn's face
Or the tears in a daddy's eyes

What os love?
Is it the ong walk to your future together
Or whispering "I love you" when your dad lets go
Is it the headlights shining on you
Or the country music playing in the background from the truck

What is love?
Is it the smell of your boyfriend's jacket
Or the taste of you girlfriend's lipgloss
Is it the sound of a baby laughing
Or of your grandma crying
Is it the pain of a death
Or the joy of new life

Yes, love is.
