My first love was love I feel in love with the idea of loving and being loved by someone So I confess, when you came I was already in love You just filled the space and I became in love with the idea of being loved by you.
Love can be many things, now this may sound weird… She drew in closer to me and said ‘ but I love it most when its revenge’.
A chill went down my spine not because of the sinister smile she gave nor the way her tongue rolled over the word ‘revenge’. It was because I knew what she meant, I loved it too.
No author explains this better than V.C.Andrews. Author of the five book series ‘Dollanganger book series’. But I loved how, the author could still portray love in its purest form.
I love you for reasons that have no beginning and no end. I loved you even before I knew you, so that my love is without reason or design. Tell me to go and I will. But know first, even if you turn me away, I will remember all my life that love that should have been ours, and when I’m stretched out cold I will but love you better after death.
Extracted from ‘if there be thorns’
I love many things
I love when I wake up early and I get to see the sunlight fill up my room slowly but surely
It teaches me patience. Don’t worry child, it says its coming.
I love when I go through them hard times and come out stronger
It teaches faith. You see child, God says I told you I’ll see you through.
I love when I’m stuck in a funk and I know I can call them and they’ll be there with a truck load of encouraging words
It teaches me the value of family. You see child, they say we’ve got your back always and forever.
I love when I watch one of my many series and they portray love in the best way ever
It teaches me hope. You see child, it says happy ever afters does exist.
I love how we could talk for hours and never run out of what to say
It teaches me what it means to connect. Don’t worry child, he’ll say I’m here.
I love how I could withdraw to my inner me and find solace
It teaches me me. Don’t worry child, I often say I know
But I love most when I don’t have to cause you’re there
It teaches me love. Trust me child you say, I love you.
she loved those smiles that hid her tears
those laughs so coarse her throat hurt
she loved the solitude and the way the silence sounded, because in her ears they were beautiful symphonies.
she loved the awkward look she got when she was simply being herself.
she loved the way it made her feel unique and without a care
and how she loved their laughter and their some what sincere smiles because they made her know she was not a part of them and would never be.
she loved those noisy nights when all she heard was her voice calming her through it.
she loved, ooh how she loved who she was and wasn’t afraid to show it.
and she loved. Loved him who wasn’t afraid either. Not afraid to see her for who she truly was. Whoever that was, for she was yet to discover.
but most especially, she loved that he loved her back.
I wondered how life would have been if I hadn’t met him.
if I hadn’t been broken up to the point when I needed more, I simply needed him
so when we met on that cold rainy day, me a girl at the peak of my youth having not yet experienced what love was.
And he showed me, he draw me close to his side, showed me his nail pierced hand. Turned his back to me and showed me his scared back. Showed me his wounded side where blood and water flowed mingled down.
Then I knew.
so that’s what love is, selflessness
cause even when I lay still in filth and sin, He loved.
so that’s what love is,lasting ‘Forever and always’ He said, until you draw your last breath
so when I sing songs like ‘blessed assurance, Jesus is mine’. No dear I’m not mourning the death of a loved one, I’m affirming my stand.
Cause that’s what love is unquestionable.
I don’t have to doubt if his love is true. Cause I know even if life gets in the way and I drop it down and walk away, He remains faithful.
so that’s what love is faithfulness
I would have been drifting in the sea of life like a ship without a sailor, lost.
so that’s what love is being found. Cause he found me.
So here I am lord, you got me
No more will I let things cloud my judgement and cause me to walk away.
No more will I go to all the wrong places looking for the kind of love that you give.
Cause your love is unique
Your love is goes far beyond what the human eyes can see.
You love is power flowing through me and giving me life.
Your love is you.
Your love is sweet like honey straight from the honey comb
Your love is strong like the rock of ages.
Your love is good and peaceful, merciful,joyful, your love is gentle.
Your love redefines love.
So here i am lord
Into your hands I commit my love
Cause your love completes me.
You should hear me present it…
