Where the world comes to study the Bible

What is Love

What is love? Asks the child untouched
Whose mother’s hand he clutched
His tender heart knows only Trust
Feels only love, knows not of Lust.

What is love? Asks the blossoming soul
Questioning her life’s role
Struggling to separate
Infatuation from love’s fate.

What is love? Asks the youth enlightened
Remembering passion heightened
Wondering if is was an act of Love
Or if not approved by those Above

What is love? Asks the united one
Whose ring reflects the golden Sun
Hoping it will last forever
That they will always remain Together

What is love? Asks the furrowed face
Moving at a withering pace
“It has remained all around me.
To its treasure I’ve not found The key.”

What is love? I cannot explain
It includes extremes of Happiness and pain
I will never understand love’s Many hues
Yet I will always know that I Love you...
