Loves Goal - Poem by Bernard Franklin

Our love has the power
to destroy and create.
Our love has the power
to heal and to hate.
Love is held in our heart
which we wear on our sleeve.
Love gives us protection
from the lies that we weave.
Love sees through injustice
and the devils own work,
Loves armour surrounds us
where Satan may lurk.

Love is all that we have
when we breakdown and cry.
Love is all that we have
when we lay down and die.
Love is the joy in our soul
and the beat of our heart.
Love is the giving of self
to accept Cupids dart.

Where would we be
without love in our lives.
Where would we be
without husbands and wives.
Where would we be
if our compassion was dead.
Where would we be
if our hearts were just lead.

The most powerful emotion
that we can posses.
Helps us care more for others
and love ourselves less.
It’s the foundation of life
the DNA of our soul.
It helps us to survive
by understanding God’s goal.
