What is Love (1)

         What is Love (1) 

What is this thing we call true love?

Where does one find its source?

Does it begin from high above?

How does it wield such force?


Many a war through love was fought

Many through love have died

Yet still we treat it as a sport

And boast with open pride


Love’s origin is God on high

Through Christ it takes its Root

By planting deep in you and I

We’ll bear tremendous fruit


Love is in fact a selfless choice

Selflessly to thrive

We hear inside its quiet voice

We feel its gentle drive


Love is a creed a way of life

Graceful, enduring, true

Not set aside for man and wife

Not always plain to view


Love is a dance a living song

Walking an extra mile

Forgiving those who do us wrong

Wearing a friendly smile


It soothes it calms it drives off fear

Oft made through suffering real

Love’s sacrifice far and near

Can comfort bless and heal


Love’s to be shared by night by day

Revealed to all mankind

To rich to poor to saints astray

True love is all but blind..... P.T.O.....

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
