I can't compare your love

I can't compare your love to a sweet red rose, For roses whither and they die. I can't compare your love to the deep blue sea, For it rises and falls with the tide. I can't compare your love to a white fluffy cloud, For clouds have a silver lining and then they turn black as night. I can't compare your love to a high flying kite, For in a tree can get caught that kite. I can't compare your love to the brightly shining sun, For the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. I can't compare your love to a knight in shining armor, For his life has no meaning once he’s finished his quest. I can't compare your love to an angel, For angels sometimes fall from heaven to hell. I can't compare your love to the rain of life, For there would be no life if the rain never fell. I can't compare your love to the pure white snow, For when the warm spring comes it all melts away. I can't compare your love to a beautiful butterfly, For the lifespan of a butterfly is only for a single day. I can't compare your love to a beautiful butterfly to see through the dark, For once the wax is melted the light goes out. I can't compare your love to the innocence of a new born baby, For if it doesn’t gets its way it tends to pout. I can't compare your love to a fish swimming free in the sea, For if the fish are not careful they can end up on a hook. I can't compare your love to the greatest literary work, For when you get to the last page that’s the end of the book. I can't compare your love to a secret tightly locked behind a door. For the secret can be found to one, if one only had a key. I can't compare your love to anything of value on the earth, For our love extends beyond the heavens for all eternity.
