“Love” isn’t a cushy feeling or emotion,
nor being duped, dazzled…by cupid’s potion,
The media has concocted this notion.
“Selflessness” needs some serious promotion,
“Self-giving” is the core of true devotion,
It’s all about being courteous and kind,
Smoothing out the rough edges…being “refined”.
Loving from the heart, not because it’s “assigned”.
Offering solace, warmth…for those in the grind
Seeing, thinking, feeling…with Jesus’ mind!
This will mitigate marital commotion,
Untying the knots that stubborn pride will bind.
Prayer and Sacraments put all this in motion,
Change gears, re-focus…it’s time to get aligned!!
