But who said finding love was hard?

of that tough path we all walk called
It shakes you silly, knocking some

their actions almost entirely.
They now give love a chance, like they
never did to us,
and all it took was two lovers,
leaping into an experience like no

and ending up together in the end,
hand-clasped, lips sealed, making a
stand against them all
in one final leap.
