Love Is

1 Corinthians 1-7 (NLT)

Love is patient and kind.
Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude.
It does not demand its own way.
It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged.
It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out
Love never gives up, never loses faith,
Is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

What Is Love
Poet: Julie Hebert, 2011


What is love, really?
Is it good manners, great body, nice hair?
No, I think that's not love but infatuation.
But it's still nice to take a very long glare.

Is love something you know?
Do you feel it right from the start?
I wish I could tell what I'm feeling,
So hard to know what's right for the heart.



Am I In Love?
Poet: Julie Hebert, 2011


I have a person in my life,
And I adore him so very much,
But I wonder what I'm feeling, is something that should make me squealing,
I think that he may have me in his clutch.

Am I really in love?
Is that possible and ever so true?
I hope to learn the answer when I dine with him later,
I wonder if he loves me too?


With What Love
Poet: Julie Hebert, 2011


What is it about love, that makes it so sweet?
It's so hard not to unravel the wrapper.
It comes in so hard, and sometimes too strong,
You feel like it couldn’t have gotten here faster.

We love to be loved, but sometimes we kind of,
Want to take things very slow.
Love comes with some heartache, and we all can’t for sure take,
Risks that we’ve once done long ago.
