                       Loves  All  That?

                      love  is  an  umbrella
                  In  life's  cold  dark  storms
                       It's  a  sanctuary  
                  For  the  hated  and  scorned

                       love  is  an  anchor
                   For  storm  battered  souls,
                     It's  a  restorer  of  hope
               When  the  world  has  thrown  you  away

                 love  is  a  sustainer  of  spirit
                     That  lifts  our  heads
                     Above  troubled  waters


                    It's  a  renewer  of  faith
                    For  the   broken  hearted

                     love  gives  us  the  will
                           To  go  on
                     Knowing  the  darkness
                    Will  give  way  to  dawn

                        love  always  seeks
                          To  understand
                        It  always  offers
                      The  best  that  it  can

                       love  does  not  set
                     Expectations  to  high
                    And  it  never  lets  hope
                         Sink  to  low

                       love  is  a  defender
                         Of  the  weak
                  It's  gentle  to  the  fragile

                         love  validates
                         love  vindicates
                    love  waits  and  love  waits

                      love  is  constructive
                        Not  destructive
                        love  encourages
                        Not  discourages

                 love  excepts  our  limitations
                     It  does  not  demand
                  Unachievable  expectations

                       love  is  unselfish
                    It  cares  about  others
                  It  will  go  out  of  its  way
                       For  a  stranger
                And  never  give  up  on  a  brother.
