What Love Becomes

At age 5 love was there, but I didn't yet know that's what it was

At age 10 love was seeing boys notice me

At age 15 love was chasing after boys

At age 20 love was heartache and suffering

At age 25 love was suspicious

At age 30 love was better at a distance

At age 31 love changed; it was no longer about someone else, but about me

At age 32 love was sharing, laughing, smiling

At age 33 love was feeling, listening, accepting

At age 34 love is liberating

I'm looking forward to seeing what love becomes!

What's it been like for you?
