Beauty without love, chastity is in vain,
Heart without music and humility is a waste,
Eyes that can’t see light in darkness
Ears that can’t hear the silent strain
Soul without values, ethics, God’s love
These are all paper roses bright
Looking just like real roses but
Missing the scent, life and nectar.
