Love - Poem by Mable Jo Baker

Have you considered the facets of love?
And the many blessings it gives?
How it lodges deep inside the heart
As long as a person lives?

Love is so very stretchable
No limits can ever confine
It's tendrils, reaching round the world
To touch each heart-e'en yours and mine!

One facet is the family love,
That shows when Moms and Dads
Look lovingly and proudly
At their lasses and their lads!

And friendship love, that sometimes,
Can last for years and years.
Another - sympathetic love,
Is shown through hugs and tears!

Love has a thousand facets,
Each one sent from above,
They can only be increased
For God, our God is Love!
