Love is sunshine in your face,
the spring in every minute;
Love is every growing thing
and songs that know no limit.


Darks are love that make a light,
they're lonelys come together;
love is sun and love is warm,
no matter what the weather.


Love's as big as every day,
love is near and far,
love's as big as every sun,
love is what you are.


Love is sand around your toes
 and grass beneath your feet,
love's a rainy day with boots,
a friend you've yet to meet.


Love's the space between the spokes,
the empty of a bowl,
Love's the feeling growing makes,
the parts that make the whole.


A thing that's hard to catch is love,
the song a rose bud sings,
a thing that's hard to see is love,
the gift the sunset brings.


Love is full from empty,
at dark, the candle's glow,
Love is walking just to walk
and going just to go.


Love is lonely gone away,
looking changed to seeing,
wanting changed to doing goes,
and been is born to being.


Love's a tree from underneath
with leaves that cover sky,
love's a present in a box,
love's a butterfly.


Love's a thing you just thought of
and words a way to share it,
Love's a smile that starts inside,
so bright you have to wear it.


Love's a dream a
s big as love,
as free as any chance,
love's a letter in the mail,
a field in which to dance.


Love is what we feel and do,
love is when we're spring,
Love is oneness of myself,
love is what you bring.


Love is what you mean to me,
though sometimes hard to say;
love is big as any sky,
as big as any day.
