The Knowledge of Love
“The Knowledge Of Love”
by Christopher B. Copas
Love suffers deep.
Love is not afraid to weep
In front of one’s beloved.
Love is willing to lose a lifetime of sleep.
Love, as it is meant to be
Supplies us with abundant rest.
Love always remembers that which is good,
Yet tends to forget that which isn’t.
For to love, yes to love is to always forgive—
To release that torment forever—
To surcease and let live.
For this above all things
Is why love exists.
Through all of life’s storms—
Through all of life’s pain—
Through all of the tears and the loneliness—
Love remains strong—
Love always remains the same—
No matter what.
For love will not play any game
That is not committed in truth.
Love is slow to anger—
Love knows no rage.
You cannot hold love hostage—
You cannot lock love in a cage.
Love takes time—
For it slowly turns the page.
From the very beginning to the very end—
Love knows no fault—
Love knows no sin.
Love is not obsessed with fortune—
Love is not infatuated with fame.
Love does not love money.
Love gives us life.
Love is holy.
Love will gladly play the fool,
Even forever—if love feels that it has to,
Knowing that it won’t
After all is said and done.
For its one and only cause
Is that love does not pause.
Love does all of this because of love.
Love sheds billions of tears.
Love takes a risk—
Love takes a stand.
For God established love to overcome fear.
For love knows no envy—
And love is never obstinate.
Love goes whenever we go wherever we go.
For if we listen and obey its voice—
Then love shall never let us go—
Because where love is
There is no cold.
Love is peaceful,
Love is liberating—
Because it is love that truly sets us free—
That leads the way to happiness eternal.
Sometimes the depth of someone’s love
Is beyond our comprehension.
The depth of our love
Is sometimes beyond theirs.
Love is full of joy;
Love does not toy.
For love believes in the truth—
In the truth that always believes.
For love is full of trust.
For love is an eternal touch—
That feels equally as exhilarating
And equally as new
The thousandth time around
As it did the very first.
Love’s motto is: No Pain, No Gain—
Yet sometimes love has to abstain,
In order that love may prosper and remain—
In order for love to stay in the game.
Yet love has to be shown
In order for love to grow.
For love is not meant to be concealed—
Rather, love is always meant to be revealed.
Love is never conceited.
For love is as much wanted as it is needed.
Love never boasts.
Love is gracious.
Love has only one condition—
You have to show it.
Sometimes love is misunderstood—
Though love’s intentions are always good.
Love does not discriminate—
Rather, love always appreciates.
Love is not afraid to confide.
Love doesn’t hide.
Love never lies.
Love not only pleases—
Love endures and is fertile.
Love cures and is eternal.
Love is the ship that sails within—
Because love conquers all—
