The triumph of Love

Love is almost complicated…, well almost always. Most of the time, it leaves you confused and wondering if it was worth the effort in the first place; that is why they dub  it ‘bitter sweet’. Even though the heart of the matter is mostly complex, there are always exceptions to the rule. There is a certain kind of love that finds its way amidst complications, trouble and doubt, which still manages to survive and last forever.
