marriage


a plutonic union within our souls
merged we become stronger
sharing in our life goals
lonely we fell no longer
commitment through good and bad
to many unions end its sad
their igneous rocks have cracked
will we make it through intact
the sharing of flesh and pain
the giving of love and time
linked together like a chain
your hand in mine is sublime
this union solidified by a third
nothing better could have occurred
yet so many seem to take it for granted
allowing a bump to make them disenchanted
forgetting their promises and responsibilities
acting on impulse and not seeing it through
dreaming of different possibilities
and drifting totally askew
this is one commitment I won't leave
I'll wear the bad like a sleeve
as one merged soul we must strive
to see our plutonic union thrive
