What is love?

No memories for us to share,
No longing eyes where I can stare,
My wedding finger, always bare,
So tell me, what is love?

No Valentines that I’ve displayed,
Or settled roots that I have laid,
The left side of my bed, still made,
So tell me, what is love?

No last first date I’ve ever known,
No sapling seeds of love I’ve sown,
No lasting partnerships have grown,
So tell me, what is love?

Accepting tears I’ve never bared,
My aching heart I’ve never shared,
Romantic meals; none were prepared,
So tell me, what is love?

No one to walk right by my side,
Or wipe the tears that I have cried,
Or feel alone, when I have died,
So tell me, what is love?
