Flowers and cards, sweets and chocolates,
Exuberant atmosphere with two different states;
Some celebrate because they are accepted,
Some get depressed because they are rejected;
Fantasy of love, the immature hunt to catch,
Finally gets deceived, as sin begins to hatch;
What was once love, slowly turns out bitter,
What was once care, begins to lose its glitter;
The memories that excited, begin to prick,
The emotions that soothed turn out to be a trick;
The innocent, mild and weak are abused,
The cruel, selfish and wicked are amused;
A colorful life turns into black and white,
It all started with love at first sight;
Love that’s meant to last for life,
Makes life sore and bitter, filled with strife;
Is this the definition of love or can someone guide me please?
Take me to a place where love doesn’t cease;
The love of this world soon comes to an end,
Can someone show me love through worlds without end?
I am tired, alone, betrayed and haunted,
I need someone, who I can lean on, though I’m unwanted;
Someone who would love me, in my state of helplessness,
Someone who would love me, in this hour of hopelessness;
Is there someone who would love me, without selfish gain?
Is there someone who would love me, knowing I can’t repay again?
Then I was told that someone gave his life on the cross,
He was crushed, wounded and hanging there for a cause;
Being fascinated of this voluntary self sacrifice, I wanted to see,
They said, “God loved, so he gave his only son for you and for me”;
Why would he do what he did when he gave his life for me?
I was told that Jesus loves, and his love would set me free;
For the first time in life, I found out what I was seeking for,
An unconditional love, freedom & sacrifice to end all human war;
I accepted his love, that changed my life forever since then,
Jesus Christ became my love, my greatest gain;
God incarnate came down for me – the Father’s love,
God eternal paid the price for my sins – the Christ’s love,
God almighty opened his arms for me – his Holy Spirit’s love,
He is waiting for each one of us to know that love the True love.
