The Gift

Love is not a commodity
Like milk
Nor is love wasted or spoiled

Love is not a factor
Like time
Nor is love measured
By how much is given

Love is a gift
Love sparks the hope
In those who are lost 
Like in a sea of desperation

Love is like a seed
And when the heart
Opens up to love
Then love will 
Flower

And then the gift
Will be passed on

And then the gift
Will be pass through
The bearer

And then the gift
Of love will be given
