Love Expressed in Night and Day

If I were to give a label to beauty

Love her label would have to be

For it is by love she is created

And love inspires creativity

 

And if sorrow need be named

I’d call her love just the same

For the sights i see as I walk down the street

A man weeps where his wife sleep

 

And if joy were given a title

Once again love would be that title

People all dancing in the rain

Watch them grow lovers ’til their dying days

 

And if pain too were called

I’d as well call her love

I see my Creator on a tree

Crying tears, sweating blood for me

 

If I were to give love a name

I’d call her beauty and sorrow both the same

I’d say she is both joy and pain alike

For love is expressed in both day and night

About LovExpressed

My name is Joseph Elon Lillie VI (that's right the sixth). I am a junior in college. I have learned we spend so much time caught complaining and focusing on things that don't matter so the things that matter slip through our fingers like water. when it comes to what matters, I have learned that nothing matters to me as much as love, hope, and faith. These things keep me focused on the goal. I have had good times where I was happy, and I have had times of despair; but my blessing has always outweighed the sorrow that I have felt. I am currently in the middle of my first novella. Enjoy the journey with me as I discover the things that really matter in life.

    Thanks kindly

    “And if pain too were called

    Blessings,

  2. Ann posted a link to this poem in a comment on a poem I wrote on my blog. Sounds confusing, I know, but I’m just glad she did. Great poem! It all boils down to love. Peace, Linda
