creator Charles M. Schulz
I sought love, in all its guises,
recoiled in pain, heart frozen, bleak.
Then "just give love" my friend advised me;
"Learn to give instead of seek."
So "I love you" to the river,
and "I love you" to the trees.
"I love you" to the furry creatures
walking at my knees.
"I love you" to the dawn,
and to the night when day has gone.
My heart grew full with all this loving,
I have built my life upon.
