Love is a gift, handle with care

It multiplies, the more you share

It makes you strong, while feeling weak

It takes control, the more you seek


It leaves you blind and deaf and scared

It takes your life and shreds it bare

It pulls you down, til' you eat dirt

It beats your heart until it hurts


Love really feeds upon itself

It feels like Heaven and taste like Hell

It makes you crawl down on you knees

It makes you call out while you sleep


It owns your heart, soul and desire

And sometimes, turns you into a Liar

Then one day, like magic, is gone

It is the calm before the storm


You'll look up at love and you will find

That was not Love, before your eyes

Real love feels good and makes you strong

You miss his touch when you're alone


Love makes you sing, it makes you brave

It gives you power, keeps you sane

It grows and grows, each day, each year

While you're apart or when your're near


Listen to the wisdom of the words I say

Real Love will never cause you pain

Do not be full by its cousin, Lust

'Cause if you do all will be Lost

    I agree with you, but love lasts forever, while lust fades away like a dream or sometimes a nightmare.
