Those Sweet Little Things Called ‘Love’

Posted: February 16, 2018

When Love is hidden in the nooks and crannies of sweet little things. A poem inspired by the way the writer experiences Valentine’s Day.

When that dad in the supermarket tells his little daughter that he will cook the chicken for dinner, just the way she likes it…that is love

When that pet chooses to sleep on top of you instead of anywhere else in the entire house…that is love

When that couple on the bike laughs helplessly because their helmets keep bumping into each other…that is love

When someone understands you’re hurting and tries cheering you in their lame, silly way and you can’t help but break into a laugh thinking how foolish, yet adorable they are…that is love

When that old man in his morning walk, gives you a toothless smile for no apparent reason…that is love

When you abruptly break into a song, just looking at the sky’s beautiful colors…that is love

When the peace and quiet of the afternoon is broken only by those chatty, chirpy birds and some kids coming home from school…that is love

When some lines from a song or a book seem to actually speak to you, because, hey! it’s you those lines are describing…that is love

When all you can think of is that life might be imperfect but it is so disturbingly beautiful, that you wouldn’t have it any other way…that is love

When all you want to do is pour your weird heart on paper, without bothering about how silly it might sound…that is love

(Mostly inspired from the way I experienced Valentine’s day.)
