Love is ....

What is your metaphor of love?

No, I am not reducing Love to a mere metaphor, but each one of us experiences love differently.
I'm just curious ... what does Love mean to you, what needs to happen for you to experience and feel Love?

Here are some thoughts of others:

"Love is a many-splendored thing,
It's the April rose that only grows in the early spring,
Love is nature's way of giving a reason to be living,
The golden crown that makes a man a king.
Once on a high and windy hill,
In the morning mist two lovers kissed and the world stood still,
Then your fingers touched my silent heart and taught it how to sing,
Yes, true love's a many-splendored thing." (song from the 1955 film of the same title).

 "Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance." 1 Corinthians 13 (New Living Translation)

"Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone; it has to be made, like bread, remade all the time, made new"
--Ursula K. Le Guin

"Love flies, runs, and rejoices;
it is free and nothing can hold it back."
--Thomas a Kempis
