I’m not sure – I can’t describe it in words
But I think I see my sister’s face, smiling when I tell a joke
My brother’s arms around me every morning before school
Dad making my lunch because I’m too tired
Mom listening to my worries while she quietly bears her own
My baby sister’s giggle when I chase her around the house
Another sister’s eyes that light up when i talk to her
My cat’s purr as I scratch his chin. . .
That’s love to me.
