How Do You Know It’s Love?

You know it’s love
When it hurts,
When simple things drive you nuts
Because you care too much.

You know it’s love
When it pinches in places
You didn’t even know existed
Deep within your heart.

You know it’s love
That’s here to stay
When no matter how far they go,
You search for them in every face.

You know it’s love
And not a fleeting fantasy
When after anyone and everyone,
It’s only they that you need.

You know it’s love
When you rise above your ego,
Like you never dreamt of,
Just to make the other happy.

You know it’s love
When it’s time.
Sooner or later,
You know.

  1. Perceptive and moving, Mia! A perfect summary of what elevates love beyond mere fantasy or infatuation.

    When the experiences you describe take hold, you know you have something lasting, perhaps, even, something to fill a lifetime.

    “You search for them in every face.” I really like that! How apt a description, and so true. Thank you for making my heart glow, Mia!
