The Gift of Love

My life, it is too short.
Not enough of my time can be spent here,
But I'll try my hardest
To complete my task.

Ignore the want and need,
Nothing should be sought after
Except for love.
Love is my task.

Keep away from war and harm.
To hurt is to be quite against my task.
Peace is important,
And reprieve is possible.

I can make reprieve.
It is my job to offer myself to others:
Whether to take jobs,
Or listen with love.

Whatever my task,
I will try to do it without question.
Everyone needs love,
And I want to give it.
