What is Love?

It's the look in your eyes when you start laughing
The jokes you tell when I'm unhappy
It's the sound you make when you figure it out
The smile you give when I won't say it out loud


It's the face you have when you get hurt
The tears in your eyes when you have no words
It's the beating of your heart against mine
The hug we shared when we kissed the first time


It's the way you shook when you met my mom
The way we laughed and butchered that song
It's the cookies you made me when I got sick
The look of relief when you got accepted


It's the pain I feel when I wake up
The tears that fall when I'm down on my luck
It's the longing in my heart for sleep
The fact that you're only in my dreams
