That’s What Love Is

Here’s a song by David Phelps that nearly brings me to tears each time I hear it. It’s almost freaky how deeply this applies in my life as I have helped my girls heal.

That’s What Love Is

It’s the only thing worth life and death.
It’s the first moment and the final breath.
It’s a broken heart keeping a solemn vow
And a lost soul being found.
You pray for faith when it’s hard to believe.
You choose to stay when it’s easy to leave
And when hope is gone you’re the one who keeps holding on.
That’s what love is
When you give until there’s nothing left
And it makes you give the very best.
That’s what love is.
It can make you laugh and make you cry.
It can let you down and lift you up so high
When you find the only reason left to live.
That’s what love is.

It’s the dream you give up for someone else.
It’s being strong when you’re weak yourself.
Though it tears you up you trust again.
Hatred loses and forgiveness wins.
You turn your cheek when you want to fight.
Sell all you have and lay down your life
And when hope is gone you’re the one who keeps holding on.
It’s reaching out and holding on so someone else will know.
Love is in the not letting go.

 With tears,

    how absolutely beautiful. i need to go on youtube or vevo and see if i can find video of song. i having brain freeze on who originally sings it. i’m sure youtube will give me choices. as you said it is a perfect fit for your life. the lyrics ring so true. thanks for putting it on your post. if i track it down i will post video on a post that i am working on which this song would make a perfect fit. i think my partner is getting the message that you are sending your lady. but mine gets kind of impatient with me. she is under a lot of pressure and i am sometimes in need of her attention when she is not always able to give it. life is demanding. ~jen~
