(a meditation of Love in scripture)

There is no greater love than this
   without it I am nothing

Patient kindness
Truthful hope

Hearts carefully guarded
Souls kept forever

Sacrificed selflessly
   one for another
Knowing fully
   and fully known

Never failing in any way
Nor rudely boasting
   in jealous anger
Nothing calculating
   nor manipulating

Love is never wrong
   without it we have no God

Poorly reflected
   in imperfection
We are but children
   whose God is love
