Through challenge, adversity and trouble, love either becomes more durable or weakens. It is a sure sign of true love that when tested it becomes a stronger. The heart grows through its scars to be more capable of loving.
Philippino writer and author Laarni Venus Marie Giango
I’d rather walk
of hell than
with someone else.
is not life.
…usually arrives unpredictably like a rain shower. No matter how much you try to anticipate its arrival, you don’t really know it has begun until love is upon you.

Love is the longest four letter word in the English language. To understand, one need only consider the eternity it takes before a response after telling someone for the first time that you love him or her.

I am too old to find interest solely in the surface and shell of you. With your loving heart, truthful soul, sparkling eyes and radiant smile I am mesmerized. It is within your imperfect perfection that I see the greatest beauty in you.
Inspirational author and positivity originator, Shannon L. Alder
to be perfect.
You were meant
to see the cracks
in her soul
and fill them
with what you
have and she
to see yours.
When I allow myself to only feel without thought, it is as if I have always known you. Through different lifetimes I have carried this love in my heart to the present. Now is a good time. I have found you, again.
By American Fantasy Writer and Novelist Daniel C Nielsen
An awakened man can
touch the heart of the woman
he loves without touching
her, just by opening his soul
and whispering her name.
And even then, it’s not the words.
The heart can convey expressions
of love without anything
being said. There is a
silent language that two people
in love understand, and neither
time nor distance is a barrier.
When their souls meet,
their senses are heightened,
energy flows, and a deep intimacy
is formed, as if the two have
known each other from eternity past.
That’s the power of the soul
and love at work.
Going through love’s difficult times can shape a relationship to a beautiful reflection or shatter it into pieces that never fit again. Trouble can bring out the best or worst in us. Which one will be decided by our choices and actions.
American poet and author Coco J. Ginger
I love you,
with no beginning,
I love you as you
an extra necessary
organ in my body.
I love you as only a girl
could love a boy.
Wanting nothing in return,
except that you allow me
to keep you here in my heart,
that I may always know
your strength, your eyes,
and your spirit…

Through the ups and downs we have become closer as our love has matured and deepened. It’s amazing how the doubts are gone and have been replaced by an uncontested knowing deep within.
From “I Love You Too” by Amit Kalantri
a day –
Great kindness may be expressed by loving, but love itself offers none. Peace may be found through loving, but love specifically brings none. Fulfillment may come from loving, but love alone does not offer it. Love offers nothing but fertile ground for all the highest and lowest of feeling and emotion to grow.
American author and motivational speaker Leo Buscaglia
To love is to
To hope is
to risk pain.
To try is
to risk failure,
must be taken,
hazard in life
is to risk
Love always remains. The frailties of being human or the realties of life may separate people for a time or for all time, but if love was present between the two it never departs. LOVE always is.
Lyrics from the tune “Lovesong” by The Cure
I will always
long I stay,
I will always
words I say,
I will always
I will always
Do not be afraid. Love is fearless. Do not doubt. Love is trustworthy. Do not hesitate. Love rarely waits. Do not lose faith. Love is faithful. Do not question. Love is truth. Be patient and let it find you or love will hide from you eternally.
From “The Secret Life of Prince Charming” by Deb Caletti
