George Egba

The Virtue Of Love

Love does not cost a thing
Why demand so much to tarnish it
Love does not lead astray
Love will always stay
Love is not separation
Love is protection
Love is not distraction
Love is attraction
Love is not bitterness
Love is forgiveness
Love is not cheating or betrayal
Love is self denial
Love is not pretense
Love is patience
Love is not eyes service
Love is sacrifice
Love is not ashamed
Love will always take the blame
Love is not corrupt or cover up
Love does not give up
Love will hold unto the end
Love is not ungrateful
Love is faithful
Love does not fail
Love is perfect
Love does not walk away
Love will always stay
Love speaks through the eyes
Love touches through her smile
Love is specially made
Love does not defile
Love is pure
The eyes of love speaks more than words
Her countenance shine more than light
Love is wise tender and calm
Love is a virtue true and divine
Love is not of this world
Love is somewhere beyond the blue

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
