What Is Love?

God is a sentimental God
God teaches us how to live
God cares
God knows what we like
Even makes the orchid blooms
This is exotic and rare
I mean the orchid
It rarely blooms because of the extreme weather

My heart is filled


Malaysia time: 3-40
Amsterdam time: 8.40

I care
At 8.40 what you are doing
I care
That you live well
While you were in my womb
I care
I care
Enough to know that Amsterdam is real cold now maybe,4c
Enough care to place an extra clock at my screen to know the time you're in.
Is this love?
I know God loves us and understands
God makes the orchid blooms so that my heart may also bloom
with exploding joy
God is sentimental
Love is..

    GOD is LOVE, thank you. Do you know the story of His Only Son who died for us all on the cross on Golgotha?
    God is the same as Jesus as The Holy Spirit. Indeed God let the orchid bloom because He knows you love that.
    God makes you create wonderful poems, sure.Your poem is fantastic.

    Amsterdam Time = West-European Time, dear Poetess. Beautiful poem you have created. A heart warming one in this ZERO degrees winter cold. My residence is in East of the Netherlands and here it is oft below zero but not as cold as in Amsterdam 0 degrees is. In Amsterdam too much winterwinds, huuuu chilly cold through the bones. Excellent Poem, I have enjoyed a very lot. A 10+++++++++++++++++++++= for the ratings. Bye!

    Dear Sylvia,

    God is sentimental and makes the orchid blooms..i knew it, God is good.
    The invention of air planes enables us to travel child is in the Haque.
    i too feel the chilly winds..what you've mentioned.
    And in life ther's sadness.. whenever i feel sad over life situations i 'll look at the flowers..that came just at the right time. Tq.
