Love Is Stronger Than Anything


When I have held a tiny dying kitten in my arms
And gently stroked its fur
And suddenly it purred.

I know that Love is stronger than anything.

When I have seen an elderly man
leaning over the bed of his dying wife.
Remembering 60 plus years of devoted married life.

I know that Love is stronger than anything.

When I have seen a lioness protect a baby deer.
Her motherly instincts over shadowed hunger
thirst and fear.

I know that Love is stronger than anything.

When I see a young soldier tell the truth
With no thought of self or fame.
Giving up his entire life to rebuke the evil
and injustice done in liberties name.

I know that Love is stronger than anything.

When I see all humanity unite
in the name of peace and love
Despite dark clouds above.

I know that Love is stronger than anything.

Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
