Love is grounded in recognition.
It is an empathetic connection
born of compassion
and nurtured to life by the realization
that we are one
in a Thou Art That kind of way.
We recognize ourselves in the other,
and recognize the other in ourselves.
And that recognition is made apparent
in laughter and tears.
Love is expressed primarily
not sexually,
but in heartfelt tears and laughter.
