I know its love
when he reads every favorite book i have on my shelf
when he knows every word to Passenger Seat
when he likes walking hand in hand with me

I can easily recognize love
by the way he ruffles his hair when he gets frustrated
i can see it on the way he chuckles when i attempt to make a good joke
the easiest recognition i know is not through his eyes, silly
but through his stomach when i see how his face light up when i bake him cookies

but when love came to me
he didn't even like to read because it bores him
he only knows the chorus of the Passenger Seat

i get annoyed when he ruffles his hair because he doesn't look cute as i imagined it would be
he didn't laugh on every jokes i make

despite the clash
love grew and stretched into multitudes
love fell and got back up
love is change
love is every flaw and mistake

love arrived when its supposed to
but love also leave when the universe tells it to
and in every moment i had with that love
was the realest thing i will forever carry

but that love will never vanish like a professional magician
it will only grow like baby teeth; removed, only to be replaced with stronger ones

love may come in a 2-month relationship
love may come in 30 years or so
love may come in hospital visits or a trip to the beach

i hope you never shut yourself with love
and when you do
find the courage to let it all in
and this time
you will discover an additional definition of what love is
