This love I have for you today
Rests firmly in my heart,
It promises to remain
And never to depart.
For love is ever faithful
And suffers not in vain,
It endures throughout the sunshine
And lingers in the rain.
Love fills the living in our day
And quells the void of night,
Love is quick to forgive
And overlook the slight.
Love helps us overlook ourselves
And put our loved one first,
Love soothes the pain of loneliness
As water does for thirst.
True love itself will never die
Though death or distance may part us-
Through love we live eternally
In the hearts of those who love us.
