In love you let the heart do all the thinking
And say with courage simply what seems true.
Time may in good time do the looked-for linking,
But you must know you've done what you can do.

Passion understands far more than reason,
Seeing in the dark with more than sight.
Truth, in truth, can vary with the season,
Nor can you ever know you've got it right.

So throw yourself into the stream of being
And let the moment take you where it will.
Fear does nothing for the bitter keening
That only love's sweet sacrifice can still.
