Reason is a calling of the heart.
One rarely reasons deeply but for love.
Best thought is passionate, a well-wrought art
Endeavoring to free as much as prove.
Remember me, then, for the many loves
That with reason I once sought to serve,
And the people that my spirit moved,
Returning far more joy than I deserved.
Eventually, all one gives one gains.
Years and people pass; the love remains.
