What is Love?

What is Love?

When your baby wraps his arms around you and lisps, “I love you”.
When your parent is lonely and depressed, and you wish a hug could travel over phone-lines.
When you find a single red rose abandoned on the kitchen table, “I saw this at a traffic light, and thought of you.”
When a person you have never met messages– “Is your silence because you have been busy, or is something the matter?”
When you see a beautiful sunset, and know who you want to share it with.

Love is what happens inspite of, not because of.

The Many Faces of Love - a new story a day, everyday in the month of February

Drabble (n) - an extremely short work exactly one hundred words in length. The purpose of the drabble is brevity and to test the author's ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in an extremely confined space.
