It Is Love

There’s but few words that can be said
But fair is never fair and does not care
And the world and all its wondrous beauty
Still cannot reach every man’s heart

These words are fragile and free
Like a shell stranded upon the shore
Or even a candle’s flame in the wind
But their beauty is diverse and radiant

These words are thought to be bounded
And never to exceed past limits set by man
But it is timeless, formless and endless
It exists since before us and continues on

Words that people fear and despise
When troublesome days had dragged by
War, death, hate, crime violence, betrayal
All made real through man’s desire for power

But these words live through all this
It brings hope to those with dreams
It brings peace to those who wish
It brings strength to the weary at heart

And these words though few
Can bring nations together
It can set fire to water
It can withstand all cruelty

It is love…

Love for a child… & Love for an elder…
Love for a friend… & Love for an enemy…
Love for the mountains and…
Love for the seas…
Love for all that exists living and dead…
Love given and Love shared…

It is love…
