love is

love suffers long the abuse 
and missuse of others
truely it is very kind
love is not envy it need not show
its specialty at anytime
love does not answer rudely
or ask for something in return
it is never provoked
or suspect its own harm
it burns in the sight of unfaithfulness
but would rather know the truth
bearing every pain that life can bring
it doesn't mind being used
love believes lies though in the heart
the truth is known 
and love waits patiently
with hopes of a peaceful home


(I Cor. 13; 4-7.)

    Well this is awesome,,,, love does not answer rudely, maybe that's why I never said mean things to my X when he woke me up, from bad dreams. You made me laugh when you ask if he was Ebeneezer Scrooge though ;}

    Love is would never be unselfish or self centred, It would never abuse itself or misrepresent...however those that use it don't always treat it with the respect and gift that it should be....really love this poem Situation....Shaz

    I know where your inspiration came from and you chose well. This has so much to say about love that is lasting and also long suffering. Sometimes the wake up call comes too late though and we suffer so needlessly. A beautiful rendition of scripture! Love, Elizabeth
