Love Poem for Jennifer
by Robert Flores
Love is selfless. Powerful. One-of-a-kind.
Love is innocent.
Love is truth.
Love is absolute.
Love is free. Without borders. Without restrictions.
Love exists because God exists.
Love desires God’s will for the other person.
Love is the pointing out of wrongs to make the other person a better person.
Love is worshipping God together.
Love is forgiveness.
Love is a stubbornness to keep moving forward.
Love is a deliberate choice.
Love is to see the other person excited. Happy. Content.
Love does not exist in one gear.
Love drops everything to attend to the other person.
Love is a balance of wanting and needing the other person.
Love reminisces about the past and dreams about the future.
Love always keeps the other person in their heart and takes them wherever they go.
Love is reality.
Love is a blessing.
Love is the adventure of a lifetime.
Love is not something that is here today and gone tomorrow.
Love is enduring. Love is eternal.
Love is the union of mind, spirit and bodies into one.
Love does not follow the path of least resistance. Love goes the extra mile.
Love is that missing puzzle piece in your heart.
Love is discovering God’s world together. Laughing together. Crying together.
Love waits for the other.
Love teaches the other.
Love builds up and grows up the other person.
Love is a concerted effort.
Love is worth fighting for.
Love is a covenant to love the other person unconditionally.
Love is taking a wrong someone did to you and giving it up to Jesus.
Love knows when to hold tight and when to give space.
Love is full of surprises. Unpredictable. Spontaneous.
Love is willing to die for the other person, but, even more than that,
love is willing to live a life of love for the other person.
It’s God’s example of love that has taught me how to love.
And that is the love I have for you, Jennifer.
