True Love

True love comes from the heart,
deeply rooted from the start,
binding us together when even apart,
expressed in music, prose, and priceless art.

It is reflected in your eyes
that tell no lies,
seeing all that ties,
in the good times and sad cries.

It is a tender kiss in a warm embrace,
being together no matter the place,
regardless of life’s pace
and its aging of each other’s face.

It is the gifts given,
the birth of our children,
being there time and time again…
thanking God for allowing it to happen!
