Kahlil Gibran

Hearts united in pain and sorrow
will not be separated by joy and happiness.
Bonds that are woven in sadness
are stronger than the ties of joy and pleasure.
Love that is washed by tears
will remain eternally pure and faithful.

― Kahlil Gibran, Love Letters in the Sand: The Love Poems of Kahlil Gibran. (Souvenir Press, April 1, 2006) Originally published 1971.
