Love is a Gift

Love is a gift
    freely given
    from me to you

Love is a gift
    growing
    all by itself

Love is a gift
    flourishing
    in fertile soil

Love cannot be
    requested
    exchanged
    demanded

Love cannot be
    caused
    created
    forced

Love cannot be
    in accusations
    in blame
    in hate

My love is mine
to give freely when I will

    You cannot stomp your foot
    and demand it

    You cannot shout and scream
    and tell me you’ll have it

    You cannot tear me and rip me to shreds
    and tell me it’s yours to have

My love is mine
to give freely when I will.
