Love is . . .

Even blessed with faith,
Without love, I am nothing;
Though giving my all,
Without love, I sound hollow;

Love always protects,
Always trusts, hopes, perseveres;
Its patience endures
With kindness which overcomes;

Love rejects evil;
It rejoices with the truth,
Not records of wrongs,
Which too easily anger;

Love honours others,
It is never self-seeking;
It does not envy,
Shall not boast, is not proud;

Know this: love never fails.

written in response to today’s prompt at The Daily Post – “record” – and re-working the well-known opening eight verses of 1 Corinthians:13
