Marriage's Made In Heaven - Poem by Rajaram Ramachandran

To make a glass cup
It takes few minutes,
But to break it up,
It takes split seconds.

We smell the rose
Not by crushing it,
But thro' the nose,
By handling it soft.

The baby with care
Her mother fondles
As she wants to share
Her love with kisses.

Likewise, a marriage
That's made in Heaven,
Confirms a life bondage
Between man and woman.

Marriage's a sacred institution,
A bachelor wants to get in
But feeling it a great burden,
Thereafter, out he wants to run.

The wife's like a rose
The husband should feel,
And he is like a glass
With care she should handle.

Any divorce, will there be
If each one respects,
Whatever any difference be,
The other one's feelings?

Will the Heaven pardon
If they break their ties,
Violating its sanction,
For few silly reasons?

    lovely poem on marriage. Bond of marriage requires a sincere commitment to keep it strong and full with love and care. Only then it would bear the stamp of heaven. (Report) Reply

    This is really a beautiful poem on marriage and relation among wife and husband having touching expression. I cite....The wife's like a rose
    The husband should feel,
    And he is like a glass
    With care she should handle.
    Thank you dear sir for posting this gem.10

    Marriages are made in heaven- a true concept that modern trend tries to look down upon and talk of human rights without each spouse doing their duties properly and not keeping their bond of togetherness sacred as per their promises before God- well brought out in these short lines of verse.Good work Poet Sir.May some confused readers gain enlightenment from your writing and settle their earthly scores with spouse with prudence and love divine and live in peace and ease.

    O great Poet! You compare the woman to the sweet smelling rose and the man to an easily breaking glass if dropped. Wonderful Sir! (Report) Reply

    'The wife's like a rose
    The husband should feel,
    And he is like a glass
    With care she should handle.'

    I am delighted with your wonderful idea! 10+++

    I have to agree basically with the numerical rating if this written piece. Basically
    because the reading of any piece should be a pleasurable experience and the
    reading of this was not that pleasurable. It contained no friendly reading elements. This removes the beauty. Whatever the skill of the writer, it is hidden
    by the pieces lack of rhythm.
