Love Devine - Poem by William J. (Skip) Henderson Jr.

Rays of light shining from behind a cloud
Remind me of love shouting out loud.
Beauty of the light that shimmers so bright
Can be none other than God's light;
A covenant to love us as we love him and each other.

For to love is the lesson each soul must learn
From life to life to life, love we must earn.
Our souls fill our being with love's essence.
To fulfill the promise of eternity in His presence.

We must love today as if there were no tomorrow
Yet more than we did the day before.
Memory of love yesterday we must borrow
To guide us to the love today we need that much more.

To love another unconditionally is to fulfill
Our devine duty to bring joy and happiness
To those whom we give it.
