To Make Your Love Matter

by Raymond Anthony Fernando


To make your love matter, you do not have to be a superstar,

You do not have to own a big car

To make your love matter,

You can be a simple homemaker,

And you can also be to your family, a caregiver


To make your love matter, you do not need to own a string of degrees,

You do not need to possess the 5Cs*

To make your love matter,

You can tend to the sick,

And help the old man struggling with his walking stick


To make your love matter, you do not need to be a people’s champion,

You do not need to ride a stallion

To make your love matter,

Though you live in a small hut,

You can be rich in heart

Reconcile an estranged couple,

Help someone in trouble


To make your love matter, you do not need to earn a fortune

Or always call the tune

To make your love matter,

You can bring a smile to an unhappy face,

Bring laughter to children filled with grace

Help an office colleague cope,

When he feels that there is no hope


*5Cs - cash, car, condo, credit card and country club
