Fear not, for love is all around you,
All you see and feel, your light and air.
The passion and the joy of it surround you,
However much, or not, you know it's there.
Even in the darkest of your days,
Raw anger, disappointment, fierce frustration,
'Mid those whose frailties their love betrays,
Still, love configures every close relation.
Destiny comes dressed at times to kill,
And willing it takes every ounce of will,
Yet love's the bloom in every obligation.
