LOVE - defined



Love, you seem hard to describe.

My feelings I often let decide,

a gesture, a touch, a look, or a word,

many times I have defined you by what I have heard.


Love, is that you in the mail,

or are you the teddy bear with chocolate on sale?

Wrapped up with paper and topped with a bow,

maybe I received you from someone I know.


Love, I remember you during that season,

but then you were gone for no reason.

I was left with a broken heart.

Why did you go, tearing commitments a part?


Love, was it you who took them away?

I trusted you each and everyday,

to be there through the good and the bad.

Now, I am left with the memories of what I once had.


Love, I know that there is more,

So I search for you behind every door.

Deep down inside I know that I should,

for I believe you are out there so pure and so good.


Love, you have not been hiding at all.

You saw my tears and heard my call.

I asked you to come in and you were right there,

all along, with me, in every care.


Love, I know now not to blame you,

for you are the answer in all that I do.

You were the one waiting to catch me,

and now I know that You are the one who makes me free.


God, I found You, because I was lost,

I see now the blood that it cost.

You are Love, and now I know,

So I will share your love and grow.


God, You clearly define the word,

all other descriptions now seem absurd.

I believe your words, the truth I have seen,

Love's definition 1 John 4:16.


"And we have known and believed the love that God has for us.

God is love and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him."


The most productive thing that we can do is surrender to God - Love.

Once we receive Love we can then give love away - here is one way to do that...
