That Little Thing Called Love – A Poem



When you complete each other’s sentences;

and look forward to the two-hour phone calls. 

When the silliest things seem so amazing;

and you crack up at the corniest of jokes.

When you make a wish up on your favorite star;

that the life with your love will last forever.

You’re not ashamed to run on the beach;

or take a walk through the park holding hands.

The beautiful rush you get riding that merry-go-round;

or being pushed in a swing, like when you were younger.

You’re not ashamed to open up and laugh out loud;

and lose yourselves in the moment.

That crazy, sweet, sometimes butterfly feeling;

is nothing more than that little thing called love!
