Bonds

By , Centerville, OH
Some think
love is an emotion.
A feeling, meant
for someone.
They say "I love you"
and mean
"I think about you"
Some think
love is an action.
They express love
by whichever method
they find best.
They say "I love you"
and mean
"I'll buy you a chocolate"
A very few
think of love
as a bond.
A bond between two
significant others.
And when they say
"I love you",
they mean it.

I have always struggled to understand love. This very simply states the truth of what it is. Ha ha. Thank you.

A bond. Good description, however, I believe it is an act of will. We choose to love, it is a feeling sometimes, but it is willpower. For example, i love my family no matter what. Sometimes they are terribly annoying or argumentive, but I still love them.
