Love Endures

This is the universe.
Everything known and unknown to humankind.
From back in time to the far flung future.

The unending swirls of cosmic gas.
The birth, the death of stars.
The dark, the light.

Here there are many forces.
Gravity, magnetism, radiation.
Electrons spinning 'round, spinning 'round, spinning 'round each other's orbits.

And in all this universe, all creation.
They pale when compared to love.
What we feel. what we are.

'Cause love builds bridges
Love forges the way.
Love takes risks.

Love calls out to you.
Takes a hit on the head for you.
Protects you.

Love isn't easy, nor hard.
Love continues despite adversity.
Or the whims of Governments.

Love is here.
In the touch.
In the quiet beating of hearts.

In words said.
Vows taken.
Plans made together for the future.

Down a bumpy road.
With many pitfalls to come.
Many joys to share.

Because at the end as the beginning.
Love Endures.
