Pre-valentine post: HOW DO WE MEASURE LOVE?


HOW DO WE MEASURE LOVE?

Is it by the years of togetherness
or one's willingness to wait?
Is it by the times of thoughtfulness
or one's joy in receiving?
Is it by the times of care
or one's ability to share?
Is it by the moments of despair
or one's capacity to contain pain?
Is it by the few moments of joy
or one's ability to multiply it?
How do we measure love?
Is it by how we love
or how love matters to us?
