Of what use is love,

if we share it with but one;

As if it were some rare occasion,

like God's "sole begotten Son".


For love is like the sunshine,

free for all to bear,

Just as all of us--God's children-

are free to breathe the air.


Thoughlove seems so uniquely special,

and indeed, it certainly is,

All of us are worthy,

of receiving this great gift.


And so when in love, please take note,

to love all with the respect due your lover;

For love is God's currency,

to be spent on your sisters and brothers.
