The More You Find

I've been too busy to write a poem this week so I'm lending you one from Helen Steiner Rice. Her poems speak to the heart. And since this is heart month I think it's appropiate.

The more you give, the more you get—
the more you laugh, the less you fret.
The more you do unselfishly,
the more you live abundantly—
The more of everything you share,
the more you’ll always have to spare.
The more you love, the more you’ll find
that life is good and friends are kind.

Hope you had a wonderful valentines day. Did you give and receive love? Here are some of my thoughts on love. As I wrote this poem I used I Corinthians 13 as a reference. After all, who but God knows what love really is. He is love and designed it.

When the moon has lost its glow
love passes by;
not to be caught, but released
like a butterfly.

Though some build tall fortresses,
are boastful and proud,
Love shines like the morning sun
and is never loud.

Love tosses aside the list of wrongs
that others have done,
And never lies to its prey as a cat
when the chase has begun.

Love longs to build bridges
when all else will fail.
It never dissapoints or leaves us.
Love will prevail.
