Love is Beauty. Love is Hope. Love is a Dream. It gives souls wings to fly. It gives hearts courage to dare. It gives people the push to risk. It is acceptance, understanding, unconditional. Love is a gift to be cherished above all else, for all time. It is something, that when real, once found, can never ever be forgotten.

Love is the most beautiful thing on earth, the most powerful magic there is. And like all things powerful, it can also be twisted into something dark and ugly.

Love brings tears, the most immeasurable heartache. Love causes wars, makes cities crumble. Love leaves devastation, the most unimaginable destruction in its wake. It kills the light that burns in a soul. It cuts deeper than any knife and leaves wounds that never heal. It is the most painful thing in the world to endure.

Love is both a blessing and a curse, the most beautiful thing in the world, but also the cruelest.

And it touches us all at some time in our lives. Which face we see one cannot predict. We can only hope and pray for the love that makes our souls blossom, sing, smile, soar; the love that makes us stronger and better than we ever thought we could be.
