How Would You Know?

Love prepares homemade meals

Without you having to ask

Love works around your quirks

Even making bad days feel alright


Love feels easy and safe

Because someone is stretching

Beyond their known universe

To accept you the way you are


Love asks, have you eaten?

What’s going on in your life?

And listens attentively

Love is present, love is kind


Love respects your time

Texts you to say that is running late

Ask if you made it home safe

Or just to make you smile


Love does not beg

It does not control

It does not cheat

Love gives you freedom to be


But love needs to receive your love

To flourish and grow

If you don’t nurture it

It will no longer glow


Remember this

The next time you wonder

What love really looks like
