Love is not jealous, condescending, 
spiteful or malicious -

love is not ownership painful or  
always rightful. 
it does not scream, or burn or hurt,
Nor does it bellow disgraceful 
  it is curious , it is wonder, it is a 
kiss that brings thunder.
   It is all things beautiful and full of 
it is a word not yet been invented, 
as no words can grasp it's full 
Love has no boundaries-
Nor will it founder by a few coarse 
Or foul In bad weather.

Love speaks no ill-
It is a void filled.
it speaks no haste
Nor care for popular taste.
Patience is one virtue
Love always speaks true

impossible to measure -
Love can be clever and should 
forever be treasured.
But never cruel, not ever
