The Way of Love

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Love is not just an ideal,

an experience of acceptance and caring,

but a way of life,

a multilayered emotion

that through expression,

unveils meaning in our existence.

Romantic love is but the tip,

a drop in the ocean of emotional expression,

that in the end defines us,

reveals our true nature.

Love is sacrifice,

placing others before you,

their happiness, their welfare,

their contentment

within your consideration.

Love’s expression

is kindness, compassion, empathy,

understanding and respect.

An opened door,

giving up a seat,

a kind word

and a consoling hand,

are the actions of a loving heart.

Without judgement,

without malice,

love guides a life

to understanding and enlightenment.

Love is a way of life.
