Love is a Decision

It is a choice we have to make day after day , year after year .
A choice that will mark each day that we live .
A decision to hug or kiss someone even if you’re too tired .
To say something kind and sweet to ease someone’s pain even if you yourself is in pain .
To smile about the shortcomings of the other , forgiving even if it’s hard .
To take the hand of the enemy to reach the greater goal of peace and unity .
To refuse to see the bad and the rotten in the evil and the wicked .
To find beauty in chaos , love in hatred .
To look inside yourself for the little girl who wants to be found .
To ignite the fire in the middle of the cold .
To share the things that are dear to us .
To give what we lack .
To be happy .
To love .
