Love Is Second

To None

What would our earthly

Lives be like without love

If no one cared for anyone

Other than themselves?

Wouldn't life be intolerable

And impossible to survive

If no one was there

who shared your dreams?

Wouldn't you be alone like

The moon without the stars

Or like homeless children

Without anyone who cares?

Love is second to none

It's the key to our survival

Without love all hope

Would be lost for mankind.
