All agree that love's a good investment
That over time will yield a rich return.
However, it is not insured. Contentment
Is never guaranteed, as one will learn.
So look for long-term growth and lifelong gain,
Happy to ride out the ups and downs.
A love that lasts is one that two sustain.
Years pass, love grows, the grace of life astounds.

Amazingly, with love the more one spends,
Like little else in life, the more one has,
Investing one's self more than one intends,
Yielding earnings unexpected, as
A well-wrought bond brings love that never ends.
