~ A Love From Above ~
What is this feeling we call love?
Is it true that it is sent by God above?
When our children, one by one, arrive
We know how enriched we find our lives.
The protective love we feel lasts forever,
Nothing short of death this bond will sever.
This must be the real love
Sent to us by God above.
But, wait, as love for a mate enters our heart,
A feeling so strong we know we will never part.
It fills us with joy and brightens each day
and we know together we will always stay.
Could any feeling be stronger than this?
As we say to ourselves 'tis heavenly bliss",
We know this is real love.
And for certain, comes from God above.
But then we recall our friends, so precious and dear.
They feel our happiness and our cries they can hear.
When we are sad it is they who stand by our side,
Then enfold us in arms they have opened so wide.
We know this special feeling comes from within
And a love like no other will slowly begin.
Surely this is real love
Sent by God from heaven above.
Each love is different; special in it's own way.
And other loves, such as our pets, I must say.
All fill our hearts with a joy so hard to explain.
With all we are given, whether happiness or pain,
Some kind of love is needed to help us through life.
For everyday troubles and moments of strife
God knew we could not survive without love,
And so, it is sent from a caring Father above.
