Love’s the name of every game, the aim of all we do.
You are love’s apostle, and you know that this is true.
Love can open every door, brighten every day.
Love’s the gift we bring to life, and we take away.
Love is born in each of us, Love comes with our birth,
Love’s the source of happiness, center of self-worth.
I love you for who you are, not just what you do.
When I see you smile at me, I think you love me, too.
Love can always lift us up, to make our joy renew:
Love is her and him and them and love is me and you.
