Love's a stream that knows no borders,
Passports, visas, lengths of stay,
Laws and papers, rules and orders:
All these lies it sweeps away.
Love knows no color, race, or creed,
Spilling over states at will,
Submerging memory in need,
Drowning walls in waters still.
No bar can block it as it flows,
Tumbling towards eternity,
Gathering wisdom as it goes,
Yearning for our common sea.
