J-Love In Our Ages Love In Stages

In the first month
Love was tentative
Love was laughter
Love was ecstasy

In the second month
Love made questions
Love made laughter
Love made richness

In the third month
Love gave friendship
Love gave laughter
Love gave family

In the fourth month
Love became promise
Love became laughter
Love became spring

In the fifth month
Love grew flowers
Love grew laughter
Love grew deeper

I would better understand this poem if the first line is read as 'Cast a long shadow for everyone to see'; and the fifth line is read as 'Make it filled with truth and honesty'.
