Love is not just found in the arms of your loved ones, in the person who wants to share their lives with you, for someone who is your soulmate. Love is not just found in red roses, romantic dates, secret whispers or a heart that belongs to your other half.
Love is found in the wind. It is the first breath of the morning air when the sun first peeks from behind the clouds. Love is the dew that falls on the green stalks of grass like a glass ball, the birds coming fuzzy out of their nests in the morning mist. Love is found in the quiet moments, in watching the clouds float freely and forming shapes in the afternoon sky. Love is found in the racing heartbeat of breathtaking moments, in the unconscious sharp air you inhale in your lungs, in the sweat, the feels good after pushing through a hard day.
Love is found in the trees that stand still among wild. The turning of leaves into autumn shades, watching the stars and waiting for the falling one, sitting on a branch with a twig pressed between your lips. Love is found in the first bite of your favorite meal, in nights when you stay up way too late and listening to songs that explain your life. Love is the sand between your toes, the cold side of the pillow, the book you have read a thousand time, sun rays splashing on your face and the way your body curls up when you sleep.
Love is found in rebuilding yourself. Love is picking yourself up and cleaning the mess up. Love knows you can. Love is reading a motivational article in the morning and getting through the day thinking you can do the same. Love is starting a new chapter. Love is hopeful days and serenading nights. Love is the little moments we survive.
If you have these in your life, you have love. Cherish it because very few people are blessed to acknowledge. Love is you.
