LOVE IS NOT

Engagement Ring

Love is not for the faint of heart
not for one scared to be a part
of existence beyond one’s own
self ruling as kings on their throne

Lovers ought to know from the start
love is not for the faint of heart
not for the one afraid of pain
and so shields his heart from breaking.

The soul of a lover’s naked
humble before the beloved
Love is not for the faint of heart
when dying to self is love’s art

demanding love when it is hardest –
knowing love won’t be recompensed.
To love is to imitate Christ
Love is not for the faint of heart.
