Love is…

Love is… Jesus Christ A mothers embrace A soldiers ultimate sacrifice Shed blood on a cross An eternal vow at the altar Patience and selfless giving Knowing when to shut up and listen Knowing when to back away, but still be close by if needed A fathers pride A mothers tears Unconditional forgiveness A mighty shelter in a storm A child’s adoring stare Undeserved grace The opposite of heart dissolving loneliness Heartache and desperation Saying no to the good looking stranger Terrifying Exhilarating Smiling when your child erases your novel The only thing that matters The only thing worth dying for My oldest son in heaven Hate’s only solution
I searched for love when once a youth and thought I found the light… that slips through your finger and puts holes in your heart that delicious candy and bitter root, I chanced upon, and met, and did try and gain the better of In desperate attempt to vanquish loneliness, I did step into the breach, and was stung, and shattered by loves powerful back lash, my tender heart smashed on the rocks of despair A lifetimes journey did I wait, and search, and false find, and agonize, and realize through pain, that I had not indeed touched loves real light, nor stood in its glorious radiance As I became seasoned, I learned to love, and gained love, and gave love, and now am enveloped in loves warm, comforting, genuine embrace My wife and children, my faith, and a home, and a place to call home, is my love, and let’s not forget my writing, my new found love, that’s been waiting on me, in an unopened room in my mind

Love is a completion of harmony and union Love is the answer Love will find a way Love is… God’s greatest gift to humanity Love is… God’s greatest gift to me Love is…eternal Love is…evil’s kryptonite                                                       R.B. Tetro ©8/15
