Laws of Love
Let love be your only debt,
That can turn into an asset;
Considering all that is given,
As it showers from Heaven.
If you are loving one another,
Just like sister and brother;
You did all God commands,
Written as the Law demands.
Many commands for your life,
As being faithful to your wife;
Not to murder nor not to steal,
Nor to lie in order to conceal.
Remember love is from trust,
Not from infatuation or lust;
It is a way to show you care,
While sacrificing as you share.
So the best place for you to start,
Loving God with all your heart;
Then give love to your neighbor,
Both through leisure and labor.
