Love is not

Love is not grasping,
Love is not controlling,
Love is not jealous,
Love is not angry,
Love is not ultimatums,
Love is not an addiction,
Love is not something that can be planned,
Love is not demanding.
Love is not shallow.

Love is knowing someone's flaws and loving them in spite of them.
Love is knowing that they may not be right for you despite the love but loving them anyway.
Love is wanting what's best for your love.
Love is realizing that everyone grows and changes at their own pace and letting them do it without complaint.
Love is valuing your time together.
Love is eternal.
Love is honesty.
Love is trust.

I miss you, I love you,
I don't wanna hang up first,
We'll talk soon,
or email,
or Facebook,
Maybe we'll see each other next year.
It doesn't really matter with us,
we will always be friends,
you will always know my heart
and my secrets.
and I will keep yours.

When I talk to you,
I get homesick.
That nasty ball in the tummy kind of homesick,
I miss you so much that it pains me.

When I talk to you,
I am totally free to be me.
No shields, no masks.

Even when life is trying to break us,
I know you will be there,
suffering because I'm suffering,
trying to make it all ok.

And you do,
you make it all so much better,
you listen,
you help,
you care,
you love.

I get homesick for you because my soul is home when we are together.
Broken people in a broken world who fit each other's broken spots.

I love you,
I miss you.
