Hearts glow, strolling down lovers lane.
They don’t get far, because they die in vain.
The sun beats down, so hard on love.
It falls on hot concrete, with fates, hard shove.
What protection is there, to keep love alive?
Is the destination ever reached on 4 ever 4 ever drive?
Exposure to abundant obstacles, limit loves flight.
Fights, hurt, yelling echos, deep into the night.
Somehow, the finish line somehow get crossed.
They make it to forever, and love is not lost.
Listening, and sacrifice of self, for sake of her.
Problems, and wrongs, become a hazy blur.
Exposure to pain
Exposure to loss
Exposure to love
Perseverance the cost.
