What Love means Was Liebe bedeutet Que el amor significa

Written by Jack Horne and Gert Knop

Love’s soft petals fall
Leaving bare thorny branches
Heady perfume gone
But with care and attention
From one rose grows a bouquet

Zarte Liebesblüten fallen 
Nur nackte dornige 
Zweige bleiben Kein berauschender 
Duft mehr Doch mit Pflege und Liebe 
Wird aus einer Rose ein Bouquet 

Pétalos de amor caen 
Dejando lampiñas ramas espinosas 
No más embriaga perfume 
Pero con cuidado y atención 
Crece de una rosa un ramillete

Love a blooming rose 
Always flowering in us 
And nourished by faith 
A never ending story 
A safe heaven for our soul

Liebe eine blühende Rose 
Sie blüht immer in uns 
Genährt durch Vertrauen 
Eine unendliche Geschichte 
Zuflucht für unsere Seele 

El amor es una rosa 
Floreciendo en nosotros 
Alimentados por la confianza 
Una historia sin fin 
Refugio de nuestra alma

    Jack, you and Gert did a super job on this collaboration! Love is often compared to a rose, but thorns are part of the package. I think it will be difficult for most readers to figure out which of you wrote each verse -- it flows so well. In some cases, the German is easier to translate lines and in others, it's the Spanish that comes through more easily. Thank you both for sharing this beautiful poem with us! Love, Carolyn
