Love Is Not Measured In Carats

Love is not measured in carats

Nor faith in grams of gold.

They’re determined in heartbeats,

Smiles and twinkling eyes.

They’re counted as belly laughs,

Long sighs and goodbyes.

They’re assessed as flowers in bloom,

Home-cooked meals and drinks.

Love is not what is on the finger

But in the heart and soul,

In the works of one’s hand,

In the delight of a mind.
