The Sum of Love

Loneliness ended and life began when she reached out and brushed my cheek gently with her finger. It set my world spinning. The others left, I stayed.

I remember her touch as if it were yesterday. Years later I wrote a song called "The Sum of Love." It goes like this:

I love you, you love me

One and one equals three

I loved you yesterday, today I love you more

One and one equals four

The sum of love, it ain't no jive

One and one equals five

Looking back, I can see

The sum of love in a family tree

Looking forward, I hope to see

A lot of little fruit in the family tree

You can do the sum of love if you try

Just be fruitful and... multiply

In love, do it in love, love, love

In love, do it in love.
