Love is not a shade of skin,
Nor can it ever be a sin,
It has no form nor written guide,
But comes instead from deep inside.
Love is not just man and wife,
Nor can it spoil or end a life,
It has no hate nor prejudice,
The simplest soul will know of this.
Love is not defined by sex,
Nor are its needs quite so complex,
It is a force beyond compare,
A gift for all who can but dare.
Love is not all that we see,
Nor is it just a fantasy,
It is the heart in all our kind,
Just waiting there for us to find.
