I think Love is about understanding,
to stand up for one another without demanding
reciprocation with threath of alienation.

I think Love is about forgiving
the ones that stray when living.
And not just forgiving eachother,
also about forgiving yourself as well as another.

I think Love is about rising above
forgiving yourself each weakness with Love.
If you want you can leave them behind,
but don't bring shame, to yourself you must be kind.
Know that you can't erase and rewind,
you can only move on
but as you do so be strong.

Go forward in Love and Respect,
do not go forward and reject
that wich you don't understand.
Find the common thread and hold on.
Meeting half way, how can that be wrong?
