The Many Faces of Love

Updated on July 8, 2016

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia with my hubby, Martin & cat, Sid.

I sometimes wonder -

about the glory of love.

What makes it so fantastic?

Is it faith or trust?

Can we rely on love -

to make our lives complete.

There is the love between parents and children,

the love that friends all share.

There is the love that two people,

who adore one another,

share for a whole lifetime long.

Love can be a magical thing,

a special feeling -

that fills our hearts and souls.

Love is special

and love can hurt.

Love can make us sing -

to dance and laugh and rejoice.

No matter what kind of love

fills our lives -

that is the wonder,

that is the glory -

of this thing called love.

      So true!

      Love can be defined in so many ways --it can be love between parents-children, husband-wife, among siblings and so on are pure and precious. It is the most priceless gift of God and those who have this in their lives are the blessed ones.

      Enjoyed your lovely poem Rasma--Thanks!

      Yes, indeed! Rasma. I think of nothing else. My favourite word. Bette Middler's song and music are really sweet. Sublime thoughts.
