"To give anything less than your best is to sacrafice the gift."

Love is the person you like but won’t tell
It’s the actions we take to show we care
Love is the words of kindness ringing clear as a bell
It’s the imprint people leave to show there still there

It can end up being the kid who used to tease you
Love is the person you like but won’t tell
Or it can be the person who stares at you straight through
Love is the words of kindness ringing clear as a bell

Love can be the shoulder she cries on
It can end up being the kid who used to tease you
Love is the boy who tans on his front lawn
Or it can be the person who stares at you straight through

It’s your favorite song that plays on the radio
Love can be the shoulder she cries on
Or maybe the shoes you wear just for show
Love is the boy who tans on his front lawn

Love is the dog sitting by your bed
It’s your favorite song that plays on the radio
Love is the kid shooting rubber bands at your head
Or maybe the shoes you wear just for show

It’s the two people walking while holding hands
Love is the dog sitting by your bed
It’s the way we shake our heads to our favorite bands
Love is the kid shooting rubber bands at your head

Love is the parents who raised you as a kid
It’s the two people walking while holding hands
Love is saying sorry for the things we did
It’s the way we shake our heads to our favorite bands

It’s that warm tingly feeling you get when they stand by
Love is the parents who raised you as a kid
Or a word someone says that makes your heart fly
Love is saying sorry for the things we did.


The author's comments:
It was for a creative writing assignment and we had to write a pantoum. I couldnt think of any topics but while searching for a song to listen to while I wrote, I remembered Bo Burnham and his song "Love is". I re-listened to it and got the inspiration for a topic and a way to write it. It's not the same craziness as the song but has the same idea in mind(at least in my mind).
