“Love is nurtured by forgiveness…”
Love rides over emotion and paces with time
It’s nurtured by forgiveness and seasoned by trials
It bears with seasons, and it’s captured by words
Its life’s mosaic expressions, more precious than pearls,
It’s humbled by revealed knowledge and embraces through the pain
It’s the quest of the heart to self-actualize through grace
It’s rhythmic in motion, and it’s silent in touch
It embraces with promises,
And sometimes, cultivates through a hush!
It’s hot in the summer,
and it blossoms in the spring
It’s cold in the winter, and it’s forever changing
So hold on to love through its seasons of pain
For love never fails, it just grows with grace.
