Love Transcends


Truly love transcends all ages

If not, noble's son would not refute his wealthy pot
And live in scanty roof with lowly maid

Love transcends
If not the crown princess would not renounce her rosy title
And reside in a dusty hut with penniless slave

Love transcends,
If not the young beautiful butterfly would not perch
On a ageing body flower

Love transcends
If not the rose flower
Would not grow on barren land

Love transcends,
All age is old enough to hold the comfort arms
