Love Received



As affection begetter this is achieved:
love given is better than love received.
As intimate defender this is enweaved:
love given is tender from love received.
As fairytale narrator this is conceived:
love given is greater than love received.
As allegiance collector this is retrieved:
love given is nectar from love received.
As liaison completer this is perceived:
love given is sweeter than love received.
As devotion connecter this is believed:
love given is vector from love received.
As perfection repeater this is relieved:
love given is neater than love received.
As funeral director this is bereaved:
love given is specter from love received.
