The Fire of Love (Faith Poem)

Playing with love

Is like playing with fire


We can feel warm and cozy

But the consequences can be quite dire


Anyone who says that love is a game

Is certainly a dangerous liar


Love is deep

And has roots like thorny briers


It can be very beautiful and grand

Or as dark and confused as a mire


We have the love of God, our Heavenly Father,

And no love is higher


His love is captivating

Like the music of a lyre


We must guard the love in our hearts

And not lightly grant it to the first buyer


But we can deeply love our Lord

And let our love reach heavenward like a spire
