Marriage - Poem by Arti Chopra

marriage is the flame
you have to cup in your hands
and protect it
lest ugly winds
extinguish it
after it flickers bravely,

marriage is a sacred union
where two souls,
learn to live together as one,
each exhorting the other,
to reach higher and higher

marriage is a companionship
like no other
each a support for the other,
each living for the other,
true to each other,
through trials and tribulations
both presided over
with fortitude and patience

marriage is a beautiful journey
made hand in hand
in this beautiful world

    marriage is a beautiful journey
    made hand in hand...
    Yes, certainly so, uphill and downhill, through thick and thin, always hand in hand.
