What is love?

Some measure worth as being great
But how we measure greatness is folly
What is it
To kill men and conquer 
Or do things before others
That grant them laud
Or is it to love another greatly
As the most beautiful thing
And what is love
Is it the union of Ares and Aphrodite
Or the love of the common people not gods
The demi gods of history loved 

Hephaestion and Alexander 
as Achilles and Patroclus
Warriors and lovers in life
Yet in modernity we deny thus
We suggest that they were just great friends
Love never ends
Love is a fire
And when it stops burning
We are dead
Greatness is love
Loving another
We meet
I burn for my Elizabeth
None others are so beautiful
My life is my love
And I am blessed
