A marriage of two


A marriage of two
is for love that is true

A marriage of two
is always something new

A marriage of two
happens sometimes out of the blue

A marriage of two
is worth it when its due

A marriage of two
is a marriage of trust
Many can find themselves lost
It can be an expensive cost

They are only very few
who have a clue
of when love accrues

A marriage of two
is about love making
It is not about
money raking

A marriage of two
can be bad
A marriage of two
can be sad
You should only be glad if
A marriage of two
is for love that is true

    No, Sylvia. Even in muslim communities where rich men had a marriage of two, men could be happy or worried because the two always feel different. But the voice in the poem is lovely expressing true love. (Report) Reply

    good, i like the line marriage is for love not for raking money, you can change it as marriage is for harmony, not for raking money.

    this is just a suggestion, otherwise your poem is damn good (Report) Reply

    This is a great poem. Kindly check on this blog, as the author is not giving credit to your poem, A Marriage of Two, and perhaps claiming it as her own.
