Here’s Love

Love

looks like a grown hospitable woman,
welcoming everyone in her home
with a cup of sweet porridge

Love

says we ought to care for people
whether great or small, old or young,
just as if they, are our own kins

Love

is gentle, patient, understanding and kind,
welcoming the poor and the rich alike
without prejudice and without trespass

Love

says, come to me ye all who need my care;
straight, gay, lesbian, white,
yellow, black, beige, brown, all:

come to me, and I will crown you with honour and respect;
Keep you from hatred and torture

Love

embarrasses not, neither does she rejoice in war,
nor disgrace, nor mockery

So, I come to you in the name of love,
saying,
only with LOVE shall we make the world

a better place.
