What is love
Beauty of face
Body, dress, or wealth
No, none of that
But indeed only
Polite, sweet
And lovely words
Make the base

Create the immortal stronghold

Truth, fairness, and trust
Build the structure
Respect, honour, tolerance
Decorate the way
Sacrificing shows
The key to destiny
Loyalty gives
The shape of visibility
Between the two hearts
Appear feeling
That all complete
The real, true, and beautiful love
That's pure love
