Author’s Note: Yes, I think I technically cheated by writing several lines, and I could probably go on and on and on, honestly. Love, in all its forms, is so multi-faceted and deep and wide and high; no wonder Greek has four differing words for it. How would YOU describe what love means to you in fewer than ten words? Feel free to post in the comments. I would love to hear your mind and heart.
