Love and Marriage


Love - what is love?
Dreaming of impossible dreams,
Falling in love with love itself,
Endless desire of being with someone,
Chasing the mirage which seem so close but is so far away.

Marriage - what is marriage?
The reality of sunshine overwhelming romantic starry nights,
Agree to disagree on matters of life with underlying love,
Battle of sexes, hating the partner but awaiting the response of love,
The unity of two imperfect strangers as nearly perfect lovers in life.

Love - what is love?
Destitute heart in loneliness seeking a refuge,
Daydreaming of a lover in the times of a despair,
The heart thinks of you and only you,
The love is blind and sees nothing at all.

Marriage - what is marriage?
Not only showing the affection when making love,
But keeping it in heart and mind all the time,
Not only showing the marriage is made in heaven,
But keeping it on earth with mutual trust and devotion

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,
