Analysis of Love

What is it?
It can't be measured
It can't be weighed
It can't be seen
It can't be touched
It can't be smelled
So indeed, what is it?
It can be felt, an inner feeling that is undeniable
It makes the heart swell so it feels as if to burst
It's a feeling that defies explanation
By any words known to man or woman
A feeling so pure
So true
So selfless
But happiness and joy are yours because you are yourself
with one that loves you for whom you are
