The Greatest Love - Poem by Masa MbathaOpasha

The Greatest Love

The greatest love
Never clothes itself with alluring words
Nor ever lives only of extreme ecstasy.
The greatest love
Gives everything and more
Without expecting anything in return
The greatest love
is total, shakes and debases, sometimes kills
the weak who burn their passion with ardent lust
The greatest love
Never ends but dwells and sleeps in a capsule
To cuddle and nurse forever with a smile
when loving has long ceased to be
The greatest love
Has not memory and knows no pain
Never despairs but beams
a source of strength and fearless courage
The greatest love
is pride and self-respect, balance and delight
….. A fiery torment of guts when no longer there.
