What is love?
I think I know what love is not
that fleeting delusion
based on appearances
that thrills the senses
over the moon.
The pure love is know is eternal
that sees the suffering
the urge for compassion.
the love of a mother to a child
that filial love
that love for the lost
for the weak
for the oppressed
that craves for justice.
That love I sense when I look at the horizon
convinced me I am loved unconditionally
I am a child of the universe
that to me is love.
When I am enfolded by the arms of God till eternity
That, to me ,is the greatest love.
