In a world awash with hues of gray,
Lived a woman seeking love's true ray.
She gave her heart, time and again,
But met with pain, again and again.
She sought a love that would never fade,
A bond unbroken, never to trade.
Through stormy seas and winds that howled,
She searched for love, unswayed, un-cowed.
With every fall, she rose anew,
Refused to let despair accrue.
In hope, she carried a steadfast torch,
In love's vast wilderness, she'd forge.
She wore a heart both brave and bright,
A flame that flickered in darkest night.
In her quest, she never did tire,
Seeking a love that would never expire.
Her journey led through thorns and rain,
Across the chasms of deep-seated pain.
Yet, onward she went with unwavering stride,
With hope as her compass and love as her guide.
She found her love, not in fairy tales,
But in daily acts, where love prevails.
Through failures many and tears that flowed,
She discovered love on the winding road.
For love is forged in trials and time,
Not in fantasy, nor in rhyme.
It's in the hope that never dies,
In the seeking heart, true love lies.
