i learned something about love that had confused me before
love is a gift once given it cannot be turned of nor taken back
once given it is there forever you cant turn it off and on
when granted with the gift of love treasure it forever

treasure that gift hold it close to your heart and soul be proud
understand where it came from  give thanks it is a gift of love
it is yours for the rest of your natural life to enjoy and respect
when granted with the gift of love treasure it forever

honor what it stands for give your praise for what it does for you
always remember even though it is yours it is very fragile
do not abuse it or it will be taken away till you learn its value
when granted with the gift of love treasure it

know the implications it bears upon you life and care for it
honor its joy its happiness and there will never be darkness
this is a gift of life an everlasting happiness for two people
when granted with the gift of love treasure it
