Because the heart does not see what colour skin you have.
It knows nothing of your religion.
The heart cares naught for your political sway, or what language you speak.
It is unfettered by gender.
It is undeterred by age.
The heart is unhindered by riches or hardship...
And it is unburdened by the webs and ladders of society.
Love always finds its way in the dark...
...when the heart seeks the beat of another heart.
They say that Love is blind.
But I say Love has perfect sight.
