Love Is

A candle in the dark

At both ends it burns;

As she who nurtures,

Cares and nourishes:

The noble healer.

A pillar that supports,

Endures and succors;

As he who shepherds

From astray wanders:

The worthy guider.

Breathless the beholders

Fragrance of the heart,

An endless longing


A priceless gift.
