Love Lives On

My love travels lengthy distances,
    Before yesterday and beyond tomorrow.
Its journey encounters many obstacles,
    With raptured joy and painful sorrow.

These times yield lessons always, that is,
    If there's a willingness to learn.
While supplanting some long-held beliefs,
    Though fearing failure if you crash and burn.

This emotional energy displays great power,
    As it navigates through day and night.
While maintaining a course ever forward,
    Mapping through blazing sun or moonlight.

When all the words are spoken,
    And everything has been said.
The love that consumed, finds eternal peace,
    Among the living and the dead.
