Testament of Love

PAD Challenge day 3:For today’s prompt, take the phrase “(blank) of Love,” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem.

 Yesterday gold...
Today gray
God faithful
All the way

To do the things we ought to do
And not keep score or record of
Those second miles and weary whiles
 That balance softer smiles of love

To be fit for the task that asks
Love to be servant, never slave
And not to shirk love's harder work
 But to care well for what we have

 To take this day of gold or gray
And give it all that we can give
And not to waste its touch and taste
Where love is the best way to live
