What Is Love ~ I'll Show You Love

Love is something out of the ordinary,
Yet is shown through ordinary things.
It never fades, nor disappears,
But remains forever in the things you do.

I wish I could say that everyone knows how to love,
But then I would be admitting the untrue.
Every person has love within them,
They just need to know what to do with it.
Most say that a rose is a symbol of love;

This is correct.

But what about an apple given to a
Poor beggar woman by a child?
I guess what I'm getting at,
Is that some people think love is
Only contained in candy, roses, and sweet perfume,
When in fact it can be in anything;

You just have to show it.
