Love Is

(Kim Lee)
Words & music by Kim Lee (c) 2007
A wise friend gave me these words of wisdom when I was feeling sorry for myself
when a relationship didn't go the way I'd hoped it would, and caused me to
reassess my expectations and reason for being.

****************************************
I was angry and hurt ~
lamenting the faults of the English language,
Especially when it came
to that four letter word known as . . . Love.
There's been so many times
when I've heard someone tell me they love me.
And now it was a word
that I felt I had no understanding of.

And she said,
"Love is the universal joy that we find in one another.
And in its purest form, a joy we share ~ unconditionally.
But the humans that we are,
we seem to always have to frame and define it
in ways that are limiting
and not at all how love was meant to be.

The moment that I heard her words,
I knew what she had said to me
was true.
And now I could appreciate
the purity behind the words
'I love you'.
From now on when I hear those words,
or say them to another,
they will be
accepted and given with that purity ~
unconditionally!

For love is the universal joy
we find in one another.
And in its purest form a joy we share ~
unconditionally.
And love is the tender care
we freely give each other.
And it's the reason life was given
you and me.

Yes, love's the reason life was given ~
you and me!
