|Love is mindless.
Give it directions and off it goes.
Provide it with purpose and lose it.
Excuse it for being only love
and expect a confrontation.
Remind it of its duties
and it will stay in bed asleep.
But let us pretend
it's a bit more balanced,
just for the sake
Suppose it's a rose forever opening.
A wise little child that won't grow old.
How do you keep its center
Always lean it toward the light.
Give it the afternoon off when you can,
but never a rest in the middle night.
