We Call It love

Poem

What is love? How do you get it? Where do you find it?

There's no peace until there's love.

Everything starts with love and ends with love.

We search for it.

Chase after it.

Fight for it.

Some of us even kill for it.

We find it and then we take it for granted, expecting it always to be there without watering it and caring for it.

Then we run around trying to get it back again.

That feeling, that elusive feeling, that had you in its grip.

The days were brighter, the air was lighter, and all was right in your world.

Ahhh, love.

I love it.

I love you.

Those 3 little words, that brings a grown man to his knees.

We fear it, yet, we run to it like a moth to a flame.

Love me.

Love me not.

I am love.

I am loved.

I will always be loved.


Love in the Bible


Love is patient, Love is kind.
It does not envy.
Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude;
It is not self-seeking, nor easily angered.
It keeps no record of wrongdoing.
It does not delight in evil,
But rejoices in the truth.
It always protects, trusts, hopes, and preserves.
There is nothing love cannot face;
There is no limit to its faith, hope, and endurance.
In a word, there are three things that last forever:
Faith, hope, and love;
But the greatest of them all is love.


1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it.

-- Song of Solomon 8:7


For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

-- Matthew 6:21

Great words - and I am left with the thought, what is love? It seems so easy to say and yet it's not easy. Or if it is, maybe it's not real. We see the word and it glides over us like a nice warm blanket. But to be real it is a struggle, a pilgrimage which has no end, or at least no end that we can easily see or reach.

And still I wish you love and peace

Because they are the things that the world and each of us needs more than anything!

tonymac04~ I don't know if we know what it is as much as we feel what we describe as love. I agree with you, there's still such a great need for love in this world. One love.

sophs~Thanks! One love.

Just thought I'd mention that in 1978 I saw Bob Marley and the Wailers at Maple Leaf Gardens and then years later Bob's back-up band the Wailers with his wife Rita at a small club called the Copa!

@Colin, Thanks.

Nothing like Bob's music. It's timeless and lives on. Seeing him in concert is a treasured memory I'm sure.
