Reflections of Love
Love is many different things,
To each of us, it brings,
Sometimes a joy, sometimes despair
Or stronger passions living there.
It can reveal itself with sighs,
Or a deluge from on high
Contradicting in it’s phase,
With turbulent, unsettling days.
The emotions that we often feel,
Seem so very, very real,
Just to find the object meets,
Our own sweet sorrow and defeat.
What is love? I’ll never find,
Answers to questions in my mind,
Truth and loyalty are rare,
And seemed beyond my knowing there.
But, those who gleam to find the best,
Who dwell with love that’s passed the test,
Are blessed to know a precious gift,
To dwell content where `er they live.
