The Garden of love

Lush, full of flowers

This love of ours

A gift from heaven above

.

Confused, I wonder

Why seek to change

A most precious treasure

Become alien and strange

.

What is love without trust

To surrender oneself without must

.

What is love without compassion

A heart of empathy and patience

.

What is love without forgiveness

A heart of mercy, the only witness

.

What is love without self-sacrifice

Happiness of others without any price

.

Was once a beautiful garden

Now barren and arid land

Left to rot without tend

Left forsaken and forgotten

.

What was once genuine and pure

Now a sickness without cure

Turn laughter to tears

From hopes into fears.
