LOVE softens the heart,
Dissipates anger,
Vanquishes hate.
It heals where it touches
Giving joy,giving life
And is manna to the soul....
Love is not self-contained,
Not captured, it is free.
It reaches in,extends out
To touch all with its'being,
It is the centre of everything...
Love never wanes
But is perpetual,
It fulfils,sustains,
Bringing order
Where there is chaos,
Calm where there is storm.
Love commands
And love is resolute.
But never unyielding.
Its' ability allies with wisdom
Its sublimity is in MERCY-
The willingness to forgive.

    Love is at the centre of us all Sylvia, some lose it and some just never do. Your words show you'll always have it >> James

    The last two lines is the most important element of all! Very nicely penned and yep, Frank was giving us all kinds of blonde jokes a few weeks back. I used to color my hair blonde alot (before it made my hair fall out) Personally I love that color and it fits me to a Tee (since I am kinda scatterbrained.) hahaha. Luv, Andrea
