Falling in Love and Being in Love

Falling in Love is easy

We keep our best foot forward

We have the nicest manners

Always chivalrous

Always caring

We acquire a sense of humor

Laugh at the letter J

We look around

With rose tinted glasses

And we are on a high.

Being in Love takes responsibility

Our best foot hurts

Nice manners take back seat

We are the first to rush in

We demand care.

Sense of humor is a thing of past

The tints peel off

Everything is now black and white.

It is being in Love

In spite of all this

Where love is expressed

More in buying the groceries

Than the dozen red roses.

It is in learning to sleep with the light on

Because the other wanted to read longer.

It takes more to be in love than to fall in one.
