Ah, Young Love

BY: Lori Strawn

WAhYoungLove131x175

"I was young once, too,"
I tell her.
But she stares at me,
as if I sprang, fully-formed
and middle-aged,
from the head of Zeus.
How can I possibly understand
true love?
So I turn to You who taught me
the meaning of the word.

Please—
let her know real love
when she sees it,
and not mistake it
for something less.
Let her love be given
only to those who are worthy.
Help her as she struggles
through the growing pains of love,
the arguments, the petty nuisances.

May young love grow
like a plant firmly rooted,
reaching to the sun
and touching, at last, You.

When I was a kid I never went to school--I said I was sick--but I always managed to get better by 3:30--I’d run into the kitchen--“Look, ma-a miracle happened! I’m well! A little angel came and sat on my bed--she touched me with a wand and said, “Go out and play.” end quote
