A Special Gift


God has given you
a special gift
that is love
you can take love
and give love
if you love your country
the country is your friend
if you love the world
the world is your friend
if you love the universe
the universe is your friend
if you love the creation
God is your friend
Because God exists
in every particle of his creation
the best way to love
is not to hurt
what you love

    A lovely piece with great sentiment; it's such a simple message to heed, yet mankind still fails to do it - that's why we need the presence of God in our lives; wonderfully message.

    Excellent. Love must be an integral part of life.When you love to any man or any woman or country or anything else, the fellings only will change but the word LOVE will remain entact.This shows the greatness of the LOVE.So allow the LOVE to enter into your life and be nearer to the God.

    Never hurt the person who loves you. Save love, save life.We often pain the persons who love us deeply. Let us not hurt from now onwards taking inspiration from this great words. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
