Passion may remain a gift,
But love is not for free.
To love and be loved two must give,
Or love is not to be.

Love is a decision made
Not once, but every day.
Two must move to set aside
The mountains in the way.

Two must act to take apart
The walls of me and you,
Just as in the act of love
One's joy brings joy to two.

Just as love's pure ecstasy
Makes others' joys our own,
Just so will love in daily life
Make sweet green fields of stone.
