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

For

It is love

That resides in the heart of Man

And

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

For

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

And

A joy shared

Yes

This is a sign of those in Love

Love comes

Love grows

And

Leaves it’s mark upon  the hearts of all

Whom have been a witness

To It’s effect upon their lives

And

The lives of others

Yes

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.
