That’s Love

When a parent
Sits outside a classroom
So their kid can feel safe
Inside the room
And not alone
Just because they’re different
That’s love

When a man
Gives up his life
To save another,
That’s love
When a woman
Dedicates her life
To serve others
That’s love

Love isn’t this thing
That’s unattainable
Or as idealist as movies
Make it out to be
It’s this flexible
Dedication to others
That lets them be
Who they’re supposed to be
And still lets them breathe
That’s love
