It's not the one that you live with.
It's the one you cannot live without...
It's the one who makes your whole life worthwhile...
Now, THAT'S what TRUE love's all about!
It's not the one you lay down with.
It's the one you make love to with only a glance!
It's not the one that you dance with,
But the one who makes your HEART dance!
It's the one you keep going back to
In memories that don't fade away.
It's not just a name on a paper,
But a name you keep longing to say.
It's someone you want to grow old with,
Whose beauty seems never to fade.
It's the one you want to die with,
That keeps you living, day after day.
It's not just a passing moment of passion,
This thing that is called true love.
It's a moment that NEVER passes,
That your heart keeps thinking of!
It's the one I always knew existed,
But didn't know where to find,
'Til God sent me a soul mate...
And said that he was mine...

~I was asked how one knows if what they feel is love or not? The best comparison I can think of love is:
1 Corinthians 13
(The Love Chapter)
1} If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2} If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3} If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
4} Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5} It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6} Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7} It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8} Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
9}For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10} but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11} When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.
12} Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13} And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
If it falls within these perimeters..it IS LOVE, & love NEVER fails! ~
