    W hat kills just as often as it breeds life?
    What spills as often as it holds tight?
    What makes old men cry for times past...
    And fills a child's mind with questions to ask?
    What bonds friends and families alike...
    What glue holds a marriage through hard times?
    What elusive gem must we all seek?
    What weakens the strong and strengthens the weak?
    What will outlast Time and Gods and Earth?
    What goes beyond the grave and is instinct at birth?
    What is older than old, and is always new...
    And what have I seen, Love, shining in you?


    I'm not sure all that together is ONE RIDDLE or each one in itself is a riddle...

    I think this is just a poem with the name The Greatest Riddle.

    But the answer is Love.

    And what have I seen, Love, shining in you?

    IF you removed that last sentences I think it becomes a riddle. Now why would a love poem have "The Greatest Riddle" on it?

    I just think its a poem because it rhymes...and the fact that its under the POETRY section of that website. :):D;)

    Even so...the answer is still love.

    Because love is so hard to figure out. Also because love kills and lovebrings life, so how can that love be the same?
