A poem — Love

Love

Love is not a game you play,

If you have it, love shines bright.

And you can’t hide it away,

For it will shine a thousand nights.

Love is not a jewel buy or a token that you give.

When it’s real, it’s deep inside,

And it makes you want to live.

Love is all or nothing,

For without it there’s no sun

It’s like a bolt of lightning,
