What have you
To offer to me?
What is it
You feel I ask?
Reconsider,
O my people,
What you see
To be your task.

Not that you
Forever harp on
Things so clear
To me above –
Simple are my
Expectations.
All I ask
Is that you love.

Love is clear
And Love is simple,
Quick to help
And slow to cease,
Love is Gratitude
And Patience,
Love is Kindness,
Love is Peace.
