How absurd is the desire of a man?
Who trades the gem he possesses to covet what is but half in value
How confusing is the affection of a woman?
Who loves you less the more you love her
How foolish is the lass?
Who, at the simplest of kind gestures, falls hopelessly
How tragic is the lad?
Who once loved with all his heart, but is now an empty shell of dearth and apathy
How sad are the newlywed lovers?
Who have just run out of love to love with
How loyal is a man’s love
That it remains faithful through a thousand temptations
How simple is a woman’s love?
That endures on even as her lover submits to vagaries
How wise is a girl’s love
That ignores the struts and vaunts but peers into the heart
How inspiring is the boy’s love?
That after yet another broken heart, continues to love with what’s left of it
How enduring is the love of an old withering couple
That they find new ways to love each other despite it all
