Love

Sexual expression
Has become the
Number one way
Our society says
To express ourselves
But, I’m so much more
Than a biological drive
Than a session of sweaty fun
And my love for my husband
Has so much more to it
Than just sex
Love is so not about
Feeling tingly and palpitations
It’s a difficult and
Totally immersive way
To spend life with
Other humans
Supporting each other
Crying and caring together
Disagreeing and making
It all work out
The way Jesus showed us
It should be
It’s not a feeling
It’s a verb
Love is an action
It’s something we do
It means so much more
Than just emotion
Than just a later night encounter
Love is a decision
To face life together
