Tribute To Love.


Love is the composite
................ of many fine traits,
With finesse drawn from caring,
.....................by small acts
Toward hurt hearts.

............Love always intiates
Qualities like gentle
............... compassion, factual
Usage of such gives results
.........without scheming.

Love heals sick minds when
.............. even an enemy
Counts enough to disarm anger
.............. from feelings
Rank with hostility..........

.......... Love will defend
Most selfishness,
................. injecting hope into
Those with need.
....moreover love feeds kindness
...............................libera lly.

Love you are mighty,
............................. from you
Pours the best medicine
...........this world
........................ will ever find.

    You speak the language of love with grace and eloquence.
    A classic perfomance from a poetess who is
    more than worthy of the name.

    Love,

    When love falls apart, and hearts they are broken
    where once there was music, now no words are spoken
    that love is not lost, its repairing your heart
    healing the wounds, to make a new start

    without love this would be a sad world indeed! (Report) Reply

    Fay, this poem sums up the purity of love that so many seek and so few find. It's heart-rending and beautiful. You certainly know the meaning of the word love, and the title is befitting. S :) (Report) Reply
