Speaking Before A Gathering In Marriage - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

i spoke before a
gathering of the
newlywed
whose faces are
as fresh
as the newest morning
in the village
and this i
emphasized that
for a marriage to work
even when the flickers
of love fade
always resort to
the comfort of having
no expectations
at all

that you cannot change
what you are
and so the only thing
to do
is accept what is there
and not to
question
what we are and
how we become.
