The beauty and grace of this love, A love which is greater than love itself

Is the song that it sings, and the happiness it brings

It is the best of the best, the top of the heap

Although it isn't expensive it doesn't come cheap

To love with a love that is greater than love

Is to put ones needs and desires ahead of your own

To relenquish your greed, and bid goodbye to selfish egos

It is to throw your pride aside and see where your heart can take you

A love greater than love itself is a beauty I can scarce describe

It's that feeling you get when the summer wind blows

Or when warm sand tickles at your toes

It's the rise and fall your stomach will feel

when on a rollercoaster of ferris wheel

The butterflies that swirl up and down

The way your heart flutters when they are around

That is how it feels

To love with a love that is greater than love itself

And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Would that we all could experience a love of this kind. At its truest and purest. This is essentially what a poets job is; or one of them; to describe emotion(s). And you did a fantastic job with this one. Great job at the rhyming as well as the description. I especially liked the part where you compared "the rise and fall your stomach will feel [when in love to] when [you're] on a roller coaster or ferris wheel". To me that painted a clear picture. And I love when words can have that effect on readers. Great piece of work!
