Love is the force that completes the soul It fills the cracks until the heart is whole It surrounds you with warmth and makes you believe The impossibilities of the world are yours to achieve

Love is a promise that brings your mind peace An awakening; a moment of sweet release You discover beauty you could not before find But when faced with heartache, it can make you blind

Love is a force that sometimes brings grief We see people suffer, and with them we weep But love compels us to reach for their hand And even when we're weak, we help each other stand

Love is a question that plagues all of mankind Why in life can't we fast forward or rewind? But love is also the answer that strengthens our faith We must look to the future and live for today

Love is undeniable, irreplaceable - but rare And at the same time it is present everywhere And in the end, this is what it means to me The affirmation that love will forever be
