Love

Love is the decision

to forgive and forget,

refuse a grievance,

forego regrets.

 

Love is the choice

to brave a danger,

help the oppressed,

stay with a stranger.

 

Love is the power

to overcome hate,

to bear goodwill,

make enmities abate.

 

Love is the vision

to see the best end,

to work for peace,

cause hearts to bend.

 

Love is the reason

any heart is pure,

any goal is just,

any joy is sure.
