Love is calling someone just to check in on them. Love is sending a text that puts a smile on a face. Love is sending a care package to a friend who is feeling down. Love is helping a young family member do something for the first time.

Love does not have to be amorous. It can be platonic. In fact, sometimes that is the best type of love.
Love is also unspoken. Couples who have been together a long time often do not have to verbally express what they want in a particular situation.
Love transcends words in that way. It also transcends language, because no matter how you say it, love is love.
