' Puppy Love ' Pen and ink (10.5 by 7 inches)
Love, they say, is patient,
Love, they say, is kind,
It sees beyond another’s faults
For love, they say, is blind.
Love will not diminish,
Or rush or fade with years,
But it will gain its strength
From time, from laughter, joy and tears.
Love is God’s own gift to us.
A present from above,
He gives us peace, He gives us joy,
But first He gives us love. (Anon)
