This poem reflects on what love truly should mean when you say it to another.


© Howard Bright

Love is what makes a man
work for the common good.
Love will listen to a lonely heart
that cries to be understood.

Love always brings comfort
when sorrow binds a friend.
Love is the inspiring action
that will a quarrel mend.

Love bears attack from foes
without revengeful mind.
Love shows humanly compassion
and always being kind.

Love is forgiving and forgetting
to allow another chance.
Love is alive on earth’s terrain
and the sea’s and sky’s expanse.

Love remains the greatest power
and always it will be.
Love is what I will give to you
forever and through eternity.
