The many meanings of the English word "love."

          Love, the most misused   word in English. 
Love, the power of God Himself, Agape. 
Love, the bonds of human friendship, Philios. 
Love, the blood-ties of family, Storge.

Love, the romance of lovers, Amoura. 
Love, the fleshly bond of sex, Eros.

  Eros, your lure of lust, called love.
  Eros, I want your body,
  Feed my burning desire.
  Eros, light my passion's fire.
  Eros, be my sexual love.

  Amorous, my dear lover,
  Amoura, I adore you. 
Let me glimpse your heavenly purity.
  Amoura, my vision of love's flower, 
 Amoura, hear my song of sweet romance.

Storge, Filia, Philoteknos, my own dear sister, brother,
  my mother, my father, my child, my kin; 

Storge, blood is thicker than water. Give me your hand, no matter.

Storge, you are my family by birth. 
 Storge, my love you can always trust.

Philios, my friend, I love you. 

Philios, I share my thoughts with you. 
 Understand my heart and mind.
    Philios, you are my own true friend.
      Philios, I will stand by you for cause.
 Agape, You are the love of God Himself. 
Agape, by you the universe subsists. 

Grant me your unfailing power. 
Agape, by your spirit you prevail.
  Agape, unconditional, eternity is your season.

  I love you.

I didn't know all the forms of love as you've presented them. It's a beautiful work and beautifully portrayed with your valentine graphics.

Must sign with LOVE,
