Love is the big things;
Shared beliefs and dreams,
A common life compass,
Finances, spirituality, world views,
The mundane, the marvelous,
The day to day of lives entwined.
But love is in the small things, too;
In comfortable silence,
Silly inside jokes,
Holding hands in joy and sorrow,
Talking into the night,
Small acts of consideration and kindness,
A heart that still flutters seeing a certain face.
When the happiness of the other is as important as your own- or more,
