The Image of Love--By Marcus Omer--United States

The Image of Love

Some show their love with goodness,
or express it with joy.
Some show love in faithfulness,
His mercy to employ.

Some show their love in kindness,
it’s shown with peace so mild.
Its lives in a meekness,
when humbled as a child.

True love comes with gentleness
it lives within the soul,
and patience is its genesis,
of he with self-control.

Who can these virtues gather,
and fashion into one?
The source of love our Father,
the image is His Son.

Can we be then made perfect
if only some we grow?
Can we become God’s elect
if we refuse to let love flow?

Marcus Omer became serious about writing after he retired in 1997. He draws his inspiration from the many emotions we experience in life. He has published Of Sunshine and Clouds with iUniverse and The Winding Road with Shadow Poetry. He’s also published in Snippets, The Magic of Words and several issues of Golden Words.
