Beyond Love

flowers ribbons butterflys


love doesn’t always come pre-packaged

it’s not always hearts, flowers and ribbons

it’s rarely happy, carefree or light as a butterfly


no energy


love can be a struggle

it can sap your energy

and make you wonder if it’s worth it at all




it can make you want to slam your head against the wall

test your boundaries

drive you crazy


baby dumbo

but when you finally hear the words

the light tender kiss

the arms wrapped tightly around you


loving eyes

when you see the depth of feeling

in the eyes of the person you love

the… “Thank you.”

That’s when you know God sent you this person for a reason.
