What is love and what is affection?
It is amazing!
If you take a genuine interest in someone else’s life
They often take a genuine interest in yours!
That could be love
Hmm. . .
Or it could be affection.
If you are kind without expectation of repayment
They are usually kind back, sometimes not.
That could be love or affection, while it lasts.
If you love someone, it can break your heart,
But the chances are quite good that it will be put back together
And mended with the cement of love
Mere affection doesn’t do that.
So, then what is affection?
Affection is looking at someone
And seeing a reflection of a jewel
That you carry in your heart
A locket that contains
That which matter most to you.
Is what you feel when it matters
Really matters to you.
Affection is what brings a smile
While love has the seeds of a sigh or a tear.
Affection is what affects you,
But love is what transforms you.
