An Abode Of Love - Poem by Christian Eliab Ratnam

Love what a wonderful feeling,
Love that has no beginning,
Love a well filled with petals,
Love that blossoms, swells and settles.

What can a man hope for,
That love itself cannot give?
What can a man love for,
Should love itself cease to exist?

Love the solution for all our cares,
Love the enemy of our despairs,
Love the root of all our desires,
Love the beauty of heavenly attires.

Love what an endless past!
Love that will forever last!
My love for you none shall take away,
Our love shall be a place for love to stay!

    This is lovely, it reminds me of real old school romantic poetry. Is English your first language? If not, your mastery of it is very impressive
