First of all, it's a big responsibility,
So think long and hard before deciding on love. But love gives you a lot of things…
On cold winter nights, love is warm. It lies between you and lives and breathes and makes funny noises. Love can wake you up all hours of the night with its needs. Love can give you a sense of security: When you're walking down the street late at night and you have a leash on love, ain't no one gonna mess with you.
