LOVE'S FORCE

I feel a force that comes from love
I cannot voice its sweep
It wakens and refreshes me
As if from a deep, deep sleep.

It matters not if for a friend
A lover or a child
It fiils my being with a joy
So tender, undefiled.

Like breathing in pure air
Like blood surging through my vein
This love I feel
In my heart
I shall always
Contain.

It makes me better than I am
A kinder, gentler me
I could not say a hurtful word
To one that gave love to me.

My heart... my soul
Is consumed
With passions wild and deep
Which surge within me
In their unheeding sweep.

To me, love is the breath of life
God incarnate in man
If it cannot uplift a soul
Then what in this life can?

    'If it/love cannot uplift a soul
    Then what in this life can'

    True so true..but I think love shouldn't be the last resort..it should be the first.

    Thank you

  2. Fuuny think DD!
    You were commenting on my poem as I was tweaking it!
    I could not sleep, as I kept thinking the poem was not right.
    so, I changed the 3rd verse.
    Was that what you were referring to about love being in the last resort?
    I guees you could have seen it like that way!
    Love the last resort for me would
    never work!
    Take care!

  13. "...I could not say a hurtful word
    To one that gave love to me."


    This only brings me to the question of why we hurt the ones we love the most.

    Beautiful poem!

    That is such a good question.
    We do hurt the ones we love the most!
    I try so hard not to... but, of-course I am guitly of it sometimes!
    But, it hurts me as much(if not more) when I hurt those whom I love!
    Take care!
    And thanks for the lovely compliment on my poem!
