Made To Love


I was made to love
I was made for love
I was made with love
I was made love

I was made to love
Tirelessly to love those I have
Not counting the cost
Not feeling I have lost

I was made to love
Seeking not my own good
Freely giving up my life and food
Blissful because I did it for love

I was made to love
Though it deals a heavy blow
Days abound when all they give back is hollow
I groan within, wishing I never loved

I was made to love
I was made for love
Bitter-sweet, rough-smooth, shallow-deep
I was made to love, a treasure I will forever keep.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
