What Is Love?

In celebration of my four-year anniversary; the exact day I met my Mr. Everything here is a poem, that I adore and I hope you adore it too!

Love isn't an act, its a whole life.
its staying with her now because
she needs you; its knowing you
and she will still care about each other when
sex and daydreams, fights and futures -
when all that's on the shelf and done with.
Love-why. I'll tell you what love is:
it's you at seventy-five and her at seventy-one.
each of you listening for the other's
step in the next room. each afraid that a
sudden silence, a sudden cry,
could mean that a lifetime's talk is over
~Brian Moore
