Let's Talk About Love # 9

There is no pride in love
No selfish vanity
To find its pure fulfillment
We must seek humility
There is no fear in love
And as it freely pours
It never empties but instead
Increases more and more
There is no guilt in love
But its vile tempter, lust
Will sully faultless purity
And rob the heart of trust
There is no greed in love
Nor self-sought indulgence
Yet Love succors our deepest need
In wondrous recompense
There is no loss in love
Its call, our greatest debt
The more we give to fellowman
The more and more we get
