Love is Love - An LGBTQ engagement poem

For James and Stuart on your Engagement x

Love is Love an LQBTQ engagement poem image of two male shadows holding hands

I wrote this poem a few years ago now, and it has been sat in my notes, waiting for today - the day when James (my wonderfully supportive and caring big Brother in Law) finally became engaged to Stuart (the man who secretly filled my biscuit tin with chocolate biscuits and my freezer with ice cream at the end of his visit - if that doesn't tell you what a lovely person he is, I don't know what will). There aren't many things in life which can fill your heart with joy and settle your soul like the moment you realise that someone you care about has found someone who really cares about them... and like all moments of high emotion, words tumbled through my mind in rhyme form, waiting to be written... So here it is...

Love is Love - an LGBTQ Poem

True love isn't love if it fits in a mould
It doesn't come in shapes or sizes
True love just arrives and takes hold

It wraps its arms around you and doesn't let go
It changes your journey - and that's how you know ...

One day you could be stumbling down a dark, beaten track - then suddenly it grabs you, and it pulls you right back.

Back into the sunlight that was invariably there, before love had your heart , but you just weren't aware.

And life just feels clearer, it feels easier, more true - when love takes your hand and it pulls you on through.

Love sees past traditions, opinions and hate
It stands firm against barriers and just opens the gate

Because your love isn't made for the world to approve
But it is there to remind you of the mountains you'll move

And in days when there is conflict, when you're not sure what to do
True love will remind you "it's just me and it's you"

Because no one else matters
And no one else should
When you make that decision
To give someone your love

And it may not always be easy
But don't ever lose sight
Because as long as it's love
Then it will always be right
