Maybe not the right forum for this but it's probably as good a place as any...

These word comparisons should define the meaning for you:

Grat·i·tude

/ˈɡradəˌt(y)o͞od/

noun: gratitude

The quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
"she expressed her gratitude to the committee for their support"

synonyms: gratefulness, thankfulness, thanks, appreciation, indebtedness; recognition, acknowledgment, credit
---------------------------------

Pas·sion

/ˈpaSHən/

noun: passion

Strong and barely controllable emotion.
"a man of impetuous passion"

synonyms: fervor, ardor, enthusiasm, eagerness, zeal, fanaticism
---------------------------------

Ergo: Gratitude is a show of appreciation whereas passion is an (over)abundance of emotion - don't confuse the two.
