For My Wife - Poem by Jim Devine

Its a day in December
to celebrate with my wife
such big hopes and big dreams
together for life

On a mountain we were married
your eyes filled with tears
such a belief in the future
How could I waste so many years

Always and forever
deeply etched in my heart
a bond I let falter
never fulfilling my part

So misguided at times
putting myself at the top
missing all the good things
that you never let stop

You've always been selfless
Always put others first
So different was I
always seeing the worst

Its hard to imagine
that one single event
Another transgression
Could halt my descent

The loss of your trust
It felt like I died
the emptiness in your eyes
hit my soul deep inside

They say people can't change
So far from being true
They could not have known love
They could not have known you

Far from being perfect
but with eyes open wide
Every day is a new adventure
No more living with lies

On this day that I cherish
never believing it a mistake
I ask your forgiveness
I'm sorry for the heartache

I see us growing old
You're my partner, my wife
I'll love you forever
Together for life

    owww....wait..i want to appreciate first the lines in this piece..it is not a fantasy coz this things can be happen to any one of us...wife is equal to husband...as husband is equal to wife..they should live equally inside the relationship called ''legal couples''...communication is the best element of the relationship, , respect and love...sincerity, honesty follows...hope this piece can send a message to all..a message of loveand understanding....no need to be demanding...it will not end to a good result...smile if it is needed, talk if there are discomforts, kiss if u like then say''sorry''......thats an advice...
