Power of Love


Love enters life in many different ways
Filling voids and brightening days
Highly charged emotion often misunderstood
Deep inside our being this power called love

Love for our children held close to the breast
Guidance through life often put to the test
Sometimes unpredictable cause for alarm
Do all in our power to protect them from harm

Love for our partner developing trust
Initial excitement then waning of lust
Comfortable companionship begins to unfold
Reaching a climax without power of control

Love for our families who we hold dear
Dealing with problems through laughter and tears
Sharing of memories some bad and some good
Overcoming obstacles with the power of love

Love for our friends we treat with respect
Forging a bond no more they expect
Always loyal and true till the end
The power of friendship on which we depend

Love for our pets who make few demands
Only needing kind words and a gentle hand
Happy to see you they stand proud and tall
Unconditional love the most powerful of all

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
