This piece was spawned by Tiffany & Co.’s “Love In Pictures” series for this month. No picture, but the result of their project.
Not what I give you,
It’s the reason behind why I do it,
Not what I can say to you,
It’s the meaning in the words,
Not the reunion after time apart,
It’s the want for that space to close,
Not the time we spend together,
It’s the time of our embrace,
Not that I see your beautiful face,
But what goes unsaid in your eyes and smile,
Not whether I have you, but rather,
That I LOVE you,
That’s all Love is…
