Love is friendship that has caught fire,
It is quite understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving.
It is loyalty through good and bad times,
It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances
for human weaknesses.
Love is content with the present, it hopes for the future,
and it doesn't brood over the past.
It's the day-in day-out chronicle of irritations, problems,
compromises, small disappointments, big victories and
working toward common goals.
If you don't have love in your life,
no matter what else there is, it's not enough.
