Colin Ian Jeffery

Love

Love is never boastful
But patient, steadfast and honest
Moving mountains in its path.

Love is never jealous, wicked or envious
Never keeping records of wrong doings
But smiling walks the extra mile.

Love is never self-seeking or proud
Never delights in evil
And has no price to be bought and sold.

    Love is all of these wonderful things... We need to remember that and give it a vote of confidence... Simple but from the heart.

    It's a mold of feelings and emotions, shows in words and in actions, a vast topic...deep as an ocean. Lovely thoughts.

    A well-written poem about an all-encompassing subject. Indeed, your words have quite a biblical flavour. Might I add that love is about listening without judging and about being there when noone else is. Great piece. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

    that is very nice, you can buy everything you want in life but, you cannot but affection. You have to love first in order to be loved.

    Yes, love is selfless, giving but not taking anything and as you said it cannot be sold or bought.
