Little love

She is five years old.
What does she know about Love?

She is five years old.
What doesn’t she know about love

She has innocence.
Beautiful as the first laugh.
Pleasing like the tears found in birth.

Her heart has found warmth,
a tickle in her belly. It rises
in the language of chuckles
and is planted as hugs and cuddles.
She watches me from her step.
From in-between a laugh, she
recognises the concoction of feelings
that have grown within her world.

This she defines as Love.
“”I love you too”.
