LOVE

Love
Love is a thing

You can't see it nor can you touch it
But you sure can see and feel its effect

A deep affection that fills you joyfully 
You are drunk on happiness

It's always understanding 
To accept the good, the bad, and the weak

It has no cultural condition 
It sees no boundary nor race

It's fearless and flawless 
It just flows limitlessly 

It's God's love
Nailed to the cross for you and me

It's in you and me 
It's I love you and you and you and God

I am drunk on happiness 
Because HE loves me unconditionally 

      Smile

I love couplets, and I especially love this one, as I feel God is love and when I read this, I feel God. Great timing too, Akkina. Happy Easter weekend!

Well expressed togetherness. My only question on content is whether or not we can touch love, if not see it. Love touches us no doubt, but...we can maybe touch it and hold on fleetingly or not. Many wishes, Kai

What is love but a second hand emotion? Great to be intoxicated by happy vibes, that is the best way to be in life and love is always the root cause for it.. Great poem, nice to read you on my return..

What a lovely summing-up of what Love means to you, Akkina! To love and be loved unconditionally is ideal; how could people put love aside and instead turn to envy and hate! I am glad that you are 'drunk' on the joy which love brings with it, Akkina. ~ Regards & hugs // paul

Nice last line "smile", I really like this understatement. I also agree with much you have said. My wife and I were born different side of the equator, her language very different to my own. We're great together (even she says so).
