What is love?

It's all of the times I think of you,
It's all of the things I hold on to,
It's when I lay awake, in the night, and know that it won't be all right, without you.

It's when you think you're running out of luck,
Getting ready to give up,
But then you find you're turning back around,
Seeing what you've really found,
What is love?

The author's comments:
William Shakespeare wrote, "Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight!/ For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night." But I wonder if Romeo, at such a young age, upon meeting his love for the very first time, really knew what love is.
