What Is Love?



 
What is love?

Love is a feeling.
We feel love for the people that we are close too.
We feel love for our favourite drink from Starbucks.
We feel love for the music that makes us feel alive.
And we feel love for the stories that we know will stay with us forever.
We feel love for our jumper with its stretched sleeves and fraying edges, because it is cosy and comfortable.
We feel love for people that we have never met.
We feel love for the sports teams we support.
We feel love for our favourite foods.
We feel love for our pets.
We feel love for moments that happened in our past.
We feel love for the photos and videos that allow us to capture these moments.
We can feel love for a lifetime.
We can feel for five minutes.
Love is a feeling.
