Love With All Your Heart.....series

True Love

 
Love that is true does not insist
Its own selfish way to receive;
It's never controlling, or forceful, or rude,
Demanding what self would achieve.
 
Love that is true does not whimper and pout
For selfish attention to gain;
It won't be offended and coldly withdraw
To wallow in pity and pain.
 
Love that is true is not angry and mean;
Destroying the trust of a friend.
It never will gossip or cruely lash out
With critical words that condemn.
 
Love that is true is not greedy and proud,
It never deceives or betrays;
It will not be scheming or ever give up
Or demonstrate unholy ways.
 
For true love is gentle and patient and kind;
It's giving and humble and meek.
True love is accepting, forgiving, and just,
The good of a friend it does seek.
 
And true love is loyal, and trusting, and firm,
Commitment is lasing and sure.
Love shows great compassion and builds up one's faith,
This love will forever endure.
