A re-post Poem-Romance Vs. Love

Here a poem from my poem book "I Am Sowed, By God's Words", the I am sowed collection, part one. It is a Noet poem form (called Nonet, now-a-days) This poem form was introduced in my book "The Rhyme It Out Project! Part One". You will see my thoughts at the time of writing the poem. 

In today's "ME" society, it is easy to get romance and love confused. I know I am still working on the difference in the two myself. However, have learned there is a difference in the two. Romance is not love and is very temporary; while, love stands the test of time. And, real love is not sex. It took great love of my children to endure raising them as a single mother through all the struggles we went through and I never gave up, nor gave them away; that's one form of true love. And, through much heartache have learned the greatest of all love is the Love of Jesus Christ; which does and will endure beyond time, into eternity. Love does endure the test of time, while romance is temporary. 

Romance Vs. Love

There is a difference, romance vs. love
Where love does endure the span of time
Romance fly's away as a dove
Our world making this our climb
But temporary thereof
Love last a lifetime
Romance vs. love
Love is prime
Above 
Time

Thoughts: Although still learning and in no way claiming to be an expert; but, from my own experiences and talking to others, romance the world does provide and love the Lord does provide. While romance is temporal, love endures, is eternal and given from above. "And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love." (1 Co. 13:13, NKJV). Thus, romance gives temporary moments, where love endures beyond time and in most cases through many circumstances. All of Corinthians 13 tells us a great deal of what love is (vs. 4-6), and to meant to be; please read. Love being the greatest gift God gave and gives us.
