Considering Love

More than mere emotion,

not bound by our intellect,

but replete with perfect 

knowledge; more than we 

can express and just enough 

to fill us —undiminished 

and full to abundance;

we cannot give away more

than we receive, for it is He 

who first showed us.

Song writers claim to capture it

in the summer’s repeated verse,

while poets try to rename it

but find no single image or word;

a child’s voice calls it out  

while plucking petals from daisies; 

a parent is startled by its clarity 

after first holding a new baby.

It predates us and will 

go on forever;

it ignites our spirits 

and defines our humanity;

it welcomes us at birth 

and follows us in death;

it never changes 

and never fails;

perfect and pure,

Love endures.
