Secret Love

Love is as heavenly as the sky above
Love is free and as peaceful as a dove
Love is a flame that burns in one's heart
But love is kept, it is hidden from the start

Love is as beautiful as the song of a bird
Love is tender, like a mother's care
Love is as gentle as the morning breeze
It will always come, it shall never cease

Love is constant, love is faithful
Love is tranquil, so calm, so cool
Love is right, it is never wrong
And through time, love shall always grow strong

Love is bright like the morning sun
Love is sweet, thoughtful, and kind
Love shall fill an empty space
For love comes with splendid grace

Love is true, it never lies
Love never destroys, it is there to suffice
Love takes the agony, love takes the pain
Love brings joy that the heart can gain

Love is as heavenly as the sky above
Love is free and as peaceful as a dove
Love is a flame that burns in one's heart
But love is kept, it is hidden from the start
