What is love? Is it just the smell of those fresh baked cookies you “love”

Tasting so sweet in your mouth?



What is love? Is it just a feeling you get when your cheeks get pink

And the guy you “love” is standing there?



What is love? Is it just the thought of a perfect relationship when both of you

Promise to “love” each other until death?



What is love? Is it just some words bouncing into the ears of you “loved” ones

Every now and then?



Love is action!



Love is when you take your daughter back in, pregnant again after she ran away

Even though she says she hates you

You love those who don’t love you back.



Love is helping the poor person, or those starving in Africa with donations

Even though you don’t know them

You help those who can’t help you back.



Love is sacrificing your time to help a learning disabled child with his homework

Even though you know you’ll be up late doing yours

You pay for those who can’t pay you back.



Love is Jesus dying on the cross.

He loves those who don’t love Him back.

He helps those who can’t help Him back.

He paid for those who can’t pay Him back.



Love is the Rule of Life.

Love is powerfull. Love that is backed up with action is even more powerful. Jesus' ultimate act of Love is what inspired me to write this poem.
