The Greatest Love Of All

There is no love
that man can share
that is greater than the love of our creator

For through him we learned
what love should be
and how we should share it
nurture it and care for it

When in spirit we knew
about love
but we soon forgot
on earth
this school of learning

Where everything was strange again
and man had free will
Where love should have been
paramount for parents
it was lost in confusion

Children would have understood
Generations would have bonded
if Parents had shown more love

Love has been the downfall of many

Lack of understanding a curse

If we took a step back
opened our arms
embraced our friends and neighbours
we could return the world
to a place of total love

But to know the spirit inside oneself
is the greatest love of all
