Love is a verb, love is an action word,
a trans'tive verb—actor, acted-upon.
It's not enough to sit back, hope you're heard,
when you don't speak to them. The light won't dawn
unless you light it; communication
requires transmitter and recipient.
Make sure they know it's not a mere flirtation,
that's it's real now and not incipient
or fading like an unfed campfire flame.
Fairly divide responsibility.
Don't act as though your love is just a game.
Doing love is not futility.
They say, if you love someone, set them free.
Appreciate, communicate, and be.
