POEM| This Kind Of Love

I want a love
that lights up my life

that asks questions
and believes the answers

that listens to understand
and remembers when necessary

that makes love
and not war

that cherishes what we have
and knows every day will not be rosy

that forgives
and will never give up on us

that doesn’t shove the word love
but shows it instead

that doesn’t control
but advises and supports

that understands the value of growth
and takes gradual steps to achieve it

that brings endless joy
and makes me feel safe 

that will always be there
and grow old with me

I want a love
that is this kind of love
