Oh, to Know Love

Love is more than what most people perceive
To really know love, you must believe,
love is…

A familiar look
A knowing glance
A sassy smirk
A long slow dance

A well known touch
that yet still feels new
A spark of fire
between just two

Sharing thoughts, dreams,
and little wishes
Still taking time for
long passionate kisses

A laugh and a giggle
for no special reason
A feeling which grows stronger
with each changing season

A playful teasing
A gentle nudge
A comfortable silence
Never being judged

If I'm lucky enough to find
and really know love
It's something I'll make sure
I never let go of

KellSue~
This is a beautiful entrance into our family of Passionate poets.
Welcome ... you wear your heart well.

You've touched love tenderly.
Very pleasantly desirable thoughts.
Enjoyed it very much.

Truly beautiful, and true. I agree with everything you have written here, and if only we are all lucky enough to find this, and steer clear of cynicism. Thanks for the read...

Kellsue,
        again, Welcome to Passions!!  This was a great first poem. . . and I couldn't agree more. . . love is so many things. . . and you have found many of them. . . I feel that we all want to know love like this. . .perhaps we have, and perhaps we will

Excellent. . .

You've captured some of the most wonderful aspects of love Kellsue ... to be able to be comfortable with one another, and yet still have the spark.  This is a lovely poem.

Hi Kellsue,

This is very lovely, love is hard to find but then when you do, you get to experience the feelings you spoke of in your poem, wonderful.
