Love Is
By James Cucinella

Love is special
Like a rainbow, the first snowfall,
the sunrise.

Love is warm
like summer, three soft blankets,
coming home.

Love is happy
like a ride on the roller coaster,
a kitten's purr, pretending.

Love is gentle
like a lady bug, soft rainfall,
happy dreams.

Love is strong
like a great tree, an anchor,
telling the truth.

Love is dependable
like a firefly's light, the heartbeat,

Love is big
like the sky, towering mountains,
the word "forever."

Love is beautiful
like the moon, having friends,
