Measure of True Love

At first it came as a surprise
I had not expected this
As the want of you mellowed
And the need of you increased
A need not dependent on desire
I came to realize I loved you
It is not in strong emotion that I feel loved
It is in the every day friendship we experience
It is in the way I long to make you happy
And in the way you make me smile
Both striving to be better
Each one for the other
It is in familiarity that love grows
Passion so swiftly comes and goes and dies
It is how we live our lives day by day
That true love is measured
