It's all I have to give
This heart with which I live
A love pure, honest, and true
Is all I have to offer you

So what shall it be love?
Take my heart and soar above?
Or are you afraid to know
The depth of love I show?

Now love, yours is the choice
Open your ears, hear my voice
This heart with which I live
It's all I have to give


That which gives light must endure burning

This poem truly shows the "King of Romance" at his finest.  Perfect for the Passions book.
