To love and be loved is the greatest gift.

To share love with another gives us a lift. 

Love for a parent  , partner or child ,

Love can be fierce or tender and mild. 

This kind of love is intense and pure ,

It can break your heart without a cure .


Love for a , neighbour a place or a friend , 

This broken love is easier to mend. 

Love for our planet , we must sustain ,

Don’t let nature work in vain . 

But the greatest love we have to give 

Is to love ourselves 

and to live and let live. 


Love can be instant or slow to burn,

The science of this , we’re yet to learn.

Love can make you anxious fearful and afraid .

Bathe you in sunshine , or rain on your parade .
