Love Grows and Lust Fades

Sometimes a love affair lasts for a life time
While other's begin and end in heartbreak
If unknowingly you mistook lust to be love
Then later realized you had made a mistake.

And you knew your lover truly loved you
Your decision on what you should say or do
Must have been very difficult for you to make
Your knowing how you would feel if it were you.

Lust is a boarder that only stays for a while
Love is a feeling that lasts all of your days
When you meet the right one you will know
Love has a way of telling us in many ways.

Because love grows and lust fades....
