THOUGHTS, by            
First Line: Is love in vain? It cannot be
Last Line: This life -- is found in realms of love.
Subject(s): Love


Is love in vain? It cannot be --
The God of Love looks down -- to see.
Our griefs -- torn hearts -- our tear-dimmed eyes,
Tokens of Love's great sacrifice.

This God of Love -- who made the sea,
The mountain's lofty majesty --
The glory of the harvest moon! the stars!
And then the mother's croon.
In lullabys -- and loving plan --
Could He do more for lowly man?

Our breaking hearts, our hopes, our tears --
Are love-strewn paths to higher spheres.
Where life goes on -- in love supreme --
Through endless aeons -- and the dream --
Of hopes and longings far above
This life -- is found in realms of love.
