A Good Marriage


A good marriage is made of equal respect
And the ability to communicate
You have to be able to talk to each other
You have to be able to relate

You have to show each other every day
How much in love you are
It takes two people to make it work
Together, not from afar

Some say you don't have to work on a marriage
Marriages work out on their own
Those are the people who live in denial
And usually end up alone

And don't forget we all have our faults
stay strong and feed off each others strength
Worry about being happy in your marriage
And less about it's length



All I can tell you is what works for us
And it's been working for over 30 years
We've shared love, respect and a wonderful friendship
And we have even shared a few tears

I wouldn't trade marriage for all the money in the world
I would never trade the man that I love
We are an example of what real soul mates are
And our marriage was blessed from God above

I LOVE YOU CHUCK

    This was a very well written poem. It not only rhymed, but there was purpose
    behind every line. The message was also powerful.I love these purpose poems.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
