Introduction for Lovely Love
Love has existed for a long time because mankind has love in their hearts throughout their lifetime on Earth. Love is innate in us ever since we are born. As an infant, we were brought up by our parents who gave us warmth and tenderness. We were also surrounded by relatives who adore us. As we grow up, beloved friends come into our lives – boys, girls, men and women of various ages coming from all walks of life. Over time, love extends its branches to become couple love, which further blooms into marriage. Through this union, we bear our offspring. Taking care of our children is a responsibility in life that we have to carry out with love. As time passes and as
we get older, we impart wisdom gained through our life experiences and shower bountiful love to our younger generation. Many people spend their lives giving love
to others and receiving love from others. For innumerable times, they often encounter both
satisfaction and disappointment. Even when death is near and it is time for them to depart,
some people still struggle with love that is not reciprocated. Sadly, they leave the world without
a good understanding of love.
