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

It is said that God is love, And if time is relative
Then love is timeless,
Infinite in its beauty, Fulfilling with its contentment
And selfish in its focus.
Only satisfied by its self for its own sake.
Shall be intended only for one true and will not tarry with folly
Knowing no boundaries or rules it will lay waste the naïve,
Punish the innocent and suffer the fool to realize his ignorance in agony.
Love is the most selfish emotion of all, it will allow no respite....
Until fulfilled by those who share it.
