Name Of Love - Poem by Abel Motha

We keep falling in love.
Finding people to be in our lives,
Sometimes we just can’t get enough.
Though we are rough, yet our hearts are fragile,
Trying to turn a house into a home,
While learning a universal game.
All in but one name;
That is the name of love.
We get hurt in the name of love,
We are bruised in the name of love,
We suffer in the name of love,
We smile in the name of love,
We walk for miles in the name,
The name of love.

Our eyes create waterfalls of tears,
All in the name of love.
Daily we strive to harness the power of love.
While going through life;
We have a desire to be loved,
While some see love burning in faraway places.
Love itself is seen in so many faces,
People open their hearts to strangers,
Believing that love won’t put them on any dangers.
In their lives love burns all the sorrow, pain and misery.
Love washes away our painful past,
Helping us to let go of all our anger.
Encouraging us to seek any hidden treasure.
