Love Is Not Just A Feeling - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins

Love is not just a feeling

It is a higher emotion

That emanates from one’s heart center


It is love

That resides in the heart of Man


It is Man

Who will reside amongst his fellows.

Once Love visits

It transforms

All darkness

Into Light

All misunderstandings

Into knowledge

All pain

Into joy


Joy is a sign

That reveals those whom are embraced in the arms of  Love

Those whom extend their arms out to others

Those who know of the delight of touching another

One heart touching to that of another

A joy is evoked


A joy shared


This is a sign of those in Love

Love comes

Love grows


Leaves it’s mark upon  the hearts of all

Whom have been a witness

To It’s effect upon their lives


The lives of others


Love is not just a feeling

You are not the first nor will you be the last to try and express "Love" in words. We can try - as you have - but -----------! :) Michael B.
