LOVE a definiion

Love knows no boundaries within its heart, once given in intimacy,cannot cede an inch of terrotory to depart the mutual promise, bound close by deed; Love in its passion,holds all things clear yet lays wide open,giving its all and lives its life ,trusting without fear a loyalty innate,of instinct's call; With faithfulness it lays foundations sure against all tribulation and heartbreak, death's tempest certain storm,it can endure, held by unseen pillars that cannot shake; With neither rule,nor scale can we measure the height,depth,breadth of this priceless treasure. | Year Posted 2010

God's love which is perfect love is not nor can not be understood in our earthly existence but it is something we can strive to attain in our life even though we will fail at reaching that end. I have been thinking along these lines and about writing a poem. I am glad that I read yours today. Sara
