I turned to Love and said, “I must be free.”
And Love said, “Surely. Take your liberty.”
I asked, “In truth? You set me free to roam?”
Then Love replied, “Just please remember home.”
And so I flew to north, south, east, and west.
And finally back to home I came to rest.
Then turned to Love and said, “You were so brave,
To let me try my wings. So much you gave.”
Love smiled and said, “Refusal to set you free
Would mean I loved — not you — but only me.”
