Unable to live in guilt and fear;
We yearn for love that much is clear.
Love is such arrives unnoticed;
To give us pleasure its only motive.
Unable to live alone in pain;
Love uplifts so we may gain.
It makes the heart go warm and soft;
In love our deepest of qualms are lost.
Love enables our soul to live;
In time we learn to trust – forgive
Our heart it sings a thousand songs;
Distinguish between the rights and wrongs.
We dance in love – embrace its light
Though lie awake in hours of night.
Love dares one to be wild and brave;
And long for all we wish and crave.
So strive to hear wherever you are;
Perhaps store love inside your jar.
Mortals in all their wisdom agree;
Love is bound to set them free.
