A friend once asked, “What is Love?” And one replied Love is like an exquisite red rose flower In a romantic, elegance, lovely shady bower Been hooked by a gentle sexy dove “What is Love?” he asked again A pretty looking lady smiled and replied Love is a magical feeling between a groom and a bride It is the current that flows through my heart and brain “What is Love? I want to know” Finally, a handsome looking guy smiled and said Love is when the heart, mind and soul are Fed With one’s emotions and makes one’s star glow So I asked, what is Love? Some say Love is patience and kind But I say Love is blind and can put you in a bind Love I say can ignorantly give one a shove Some say Love does not envy Some say love does not boast But I say Love is what others need the most Love can actually make people go crazy I have found out that Love is not a feeling And that Love is trusting and caring But Love can be a bit over bearing And true Love when unwrapped brings divine healing Some say “Adam and Eve created Love Romeo and Juliet made Love Sampson and Delilah betrayed Love And Julius Ceaser died for Love” The Love I found is a Love like no other It was not the Love of Adam and Eve Neither was it the Love of Sampson, who was deceive Nor was it the Love between a sister and a brother The Love I found was shed on old rugged cross It was offered to you and me He came into my life as a light so I can see To sum it all up, “J-E-S-U-S is my Chili Sauce”

A standout piece. I say Love wears many cloaks but we only know if it is true when we ask to hold the cloak. Only in few houses is Love is not a stranger. The beat of your poem rings true. Best regards David in NZ
