The Heart’s Call

Hello everyone! I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a while.

This is another poem I wrote for my creative writing class. Although I enjoy it, and I’m sure you will too, I want to remind everyone that love isn’t primarily a feeling; it is an action. In 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, Paul describes what love truly is. He writes, “Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails” (The Holy Bible, New King James Version, 1 Cor. 13.4-8). True love is not a whim; it’s steadfast and endures. It is humble. It does what is good and not evil. It is God-focused; it trusts in Him. Christ also reminds us that “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends” (John 15.13). Loving someone entails being willing to sacrifice for them, just as Christ loved His church and gave up all He had in heaven to sacrifice Himself to redeem her.

Happy reading!

 A song was sung from heart to heart
One thought that this was true love’s start,
Yet they have been for years apart,
Forgetting the song they once sang.
 
They remembered not things now past
(A song was sung from heart to heart),
For many taught that love did not last,
Yet something within brought a pang.
 
One day, each heard the music lost;
Music that melted mem’ry’s frost.
A song was sung from heart to heart.
In one’s home, a telephone rang.
 
They met again filled with much joy,
Reliving times as girl and boy.
Now deep true loves they could enjoy.
A song was sung from heart to heart.
