Love Is Stronger Than Anything


When I have held a tiny dying kitten in my arms
And gently stroked its fur
And suddenly it purred.

I know that Love is stronger than anything.

When I have seen an elderly man
leaning over the bed of his dying wife.
Remembering 60 plus years of devoted married life.

I know that Love is stronger than anything.

When I have seen a lioness protect a baby deer.
Her motherly instincts over shadowed hunger
thirst and fear.

I know that Love is stronger than anything.

When I see a young soldier tell the truth
With no thought of self or fame.
Giving up his entire life to rebuke the evil
and injustice done in liberties name.

I know that Love is stronger than anything.

When I see all humanity unite
in the name of peace and love
Despite dark clouds above.

I know that Love is stronger than anything.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
