The Wealth of Love


We are born of love, love is our mother
~ Rumi


The wealth of love is eternal
No force can away it snatch
An emotion so primal
None other can it match

Available in abundance
Yet so hard for us to find
Forgotten its existence
Lost in vestiges of mankind

The human race must transform
All acts with kndness must it do
Seems harder than the fiercest storm
Is to let the love shine through

Do we even comprehend
What love truly means
It's a divine gift He blessed
With no expectation no fees

Its value so priceless
No gem can hold its light
Yet for it we are careless
And against it often fight

Crossed over then we see its worth
For love is only bliss
Such a wasted time this birth
Love was all that is

The wealth of love is eternal
No force can away it snatch
An emotion so primal
None other can it match

    It is most unfair to the love being acted out. It is often taken for granted and it is faced with a lot of dilemma!

  2. Love is a force we should live by... it should be easy but it's not.

    Very much so Suzy! It is not just a feeling but a sacrifice that goes beyond the immediate that emotions are invoked for the better! Great lines and wonderful rhyming!
