What is Love?

To love is to give—
to give yourself,
your heart
a door flung wide

to give another
power over you
to wound. . .
. . . or to heal

If God is Love,
then think of
the power He gives us
over Himself,

how He gave Himself
so fully to us,
Wounded for
our healing

    to love is to give. . .
