Fay Slimm.





Love needs itself and nothing more.
Love acts but desires no applause.
Love withstands arrows thrown to hurt.
Love pledges and does not revert.
Love's word becomes a bond forever.
Love rewards its own endeavour.
Love's demonstration never wears thin.
Love does not regret or feel guilt. 
Love believes what it starts has no end.
Love treats each stranger as a friend.
Love showers balm on hearts bled raw.
Love is the foremost power of all.

          Love deserves every poet's words and you decipher the meaning behind the lines so well dear Brian - thanking you loads.

            You have encapsulated many of love's wonders here but i feel there's one big quality of love which is missing - "love hurts".

            Yes, love in all it's guises is the foremost power just as you state. I wish we could prescribe buckets full of it for those who have evil intent in their hearts.

            • Fay Slimm.

              How right you are D.A. and after reading your comment I will attempt to write a sequel to love's powerful ability to ravage the heart - - I have been there and I know - - many thank yous for dropping by and giving us all this needed reminder. Cher sang the song "Love Hurts" at a time I remember so well.........................

              Love is the strength of the weak -
              - and the weakness of the strong.
