Love, my child, is not demanding

Itís not simply getting your way;

It is trying to be understanding

To love in all circumstances, come what may.


Love is not possessive

Cramping anotherís style

It is giving others their freedom

To express their uniqueness with a smile.


Love, my child, is not envious

It is sharing a common brokenness

Knowing humanity is imperfect

Yet there is much to love and respect.


Remember, my child, to make your yoke light

Like Jesus, forgive and forget

Love is kind, patient, enduring

Remember, child, always to be caring.


Love is not self-vanity

Pandering to your little ego

For Jesus, love is humility

Making sacrifices for the good

Of our vulnerable, flawed humanity.


Love is of GOD, GOD is LOVE,

Abundant blessings flow

Whatever you receive

Remember, child, gratefully to give.
