"All you need is Love."-The Beatles


There's a love everlasting,
That burns deep within us.
An undying ember,
That neither water nor sand can quench.
And though we think the fire doused,
It can never be put out.
The fire is given,
As a gift.
Though sometimes we misgive,
And are hurt.
But every fire, has its fuel.
And each fire endures until its fuel is found.
Fire feeds off of fire.
That of another.
Sometimes the fire-fuel match is never found,
But the match still exists.
There is a fire-fuel match for all of us,
one that never dies.
And for every flame joined with another,
A bonfire arises.
And born from the ashes,
Rises a phoenix,
The emblem of life eternal.
The way of life eternal is
Love.
Love,
and be loved.
Love with a fiery passion,
Forever.


The author's comments:
This is one of my better poems, born of the belief that there is a perfect love with a perfect partner for each person on this earth. I hope that people learn to love more fully and completely from this.

Great poem! I really like the repetition of "fire" throughout the poem, it really adds substance and shows your creativity. The same applies for the word "love" at the end. Some poets' uses of repetition is not so great, but you certainly have this skill.
