Love is . . .

And love is the manger
And love is the star
And love is the fusion
Be it near or afar.
And love is the promise
In constancy given.
And love is the palette
That bursts from the prism.
And love is the seed
And love is the birth
And love is the fruit
From the root of dry earth.
And love is the gift
Beyond price and yet free.
And love is the candle
And love is the tree.
And love is the question
And love the reply.
The gift born in Heaven
That never can die.
And love never changes
In three, yet the whole.
And love is the vision
Of mind, heart and soul.
And love is the leper
And love is the Lord
And love is the action
Made flesh by the word.
And love is the rose
And love is the thorn
And love is the nail
And love is the crown.
And love is the alpha
The beginning and end.
And there in the midst
God chose me – a friend.
