If I loved as much as I were able,
With all my heart, all my soul, all my might,
What love in return would I enable?
Could giving that much love ever feel right?
If I could feel as loved as I desire,
With all of someone’s heart and soul and might,
Could I survive the flames of such a fire,
Sustaining burns of focused blinding light?
What is the limit of a human’s love,
If loved with all their heart and soul and might?
Who could withstand it besides God above?
Love is the sun but we love like moonlight.
To love as much as Heaven might demand,
How much can heart and soul and might withstand?
Derived from an interesting theoretical problem: in Deuteronomy, in the Sh’ma prayer, Israel is commanded to love God “with all your heart, with all your soul and all your might.” Is that because only God can withstand such love, or can a human love another human with that capacity?
