Something painful; yet wonderful

Something uncertain; yet beautiful

Is it enough just to see it?

Or is going through it too painful to be worthwhile?

To feel pain in wonder;

Or to give up wonder for no pain?

To leave yourself open and vulnerable

Your emotions in a turmoil

No one can ever tell you what it's like

For it is pain and beauty with no words

Sometimes you choose it – but many other times

It chooses you.

Perhaps it is painful; but when the time comes -

You really have no choice.

To feel both extremes at the same time

Your body torn in between.

But in the end, know the beauty in it all.

For love is but a beautiful thing.
