Love is so many things

Love is the unquestioning sacrifice we make for others
Love is keeping silent when we die to speak
Love is sorting out one's words ever so meticulously
Love is forgiving when you'd rather keep a grudge
Love is accepting another's darkest side
Love is going that extra mile without expecting an overtime fee
Love is the conscious effort to remain self-controlled even when you'd rather bust
And yet

Love is taking a firm stand against all adversity
Love is saying a gentle but firm 'no' to the unreasonable
Love is having to single out a particular person from a group
Love is a do or die struggle to preserve one's dignity and the interests of those we love
Love is a gentle but meaningful correction
Oh yes
Love is a feeling best expressed in action

Did you say you love.....,think again!
