' The Mystery Of Sex & Marriage ' - Poem by Tom Zart
' THE MYSTERY of MARRIAGE '
The mystery of marriages that fail or succeed
Has always been a question of devotion and love.
When you actually appreciate each other’s gift
Your union becomes blessed from above.
If you’re truly determined to have a happier marriage
You strive to improve and enhance it.
When you expect nothing will ever change
You’re more reluctant to surrender or submit.
Saying you’re sorry for bad behavior
Is never enough to maintain loves fire.
You must always express your absolute need
For your partners respect and desire.
Love your partner beyond anything else
Praying God and His wisdom will bless your home.
Try to remember should you fuss or fight
What it’s like to be sad and alone.
Serving your partner more than yourself
Is not always simple or easy to do.
But when you love someone you can’t replace
You reconsider your displeasure and renew.
SEX AND ROMANCE
Some other time, I’m not in the mood
Why cant we just cuddle and watch TV
When couples drift into the celibate zone
It’s not long till someone will flee.
Sexual fulfillment helps preserve love
Parenthood, marriage and self-esteem.
Those who maintain it avoid saying no
To be blessed by its pleasure and gleam.
While dating we tend to be more romantic
Putting forth the best of our charms.
Sharing dinners, long walks and lustful weekends
As we spend more time in each other’s arms.
How many times have you said “not tonight”
Exposing your happy home to harm?
Today’s crushing deadlines leave little time for love
Leaving partners with sorrow, sadness and alarm.
So share one another with red wine and time
Dial your own number and leave the phone off the hook.
Enjoy some romance, sex and laughter
Improving your mood and the way you look.
LIKE A LILY AMONG THE THORNS
Like a lily among the thorns
So are you among the rest.
Your love is my joy of life
Which by God’s grace is the best.
When I sleep my heart is awake
It is the vice of love within.
By day or night I seek your love
My life mate, my partner, my friend.
You ravish my heart with just one look
When I’m less than you desire.
Your eyes speak without words
As displeasure kindles your fire.
Your beautiful and extraordinary
Like a fragrant flower from the wild.
I dream of the day you softly whisper,
“My love, I carry your child.”
The vines put forth their tender grapes
The fig tree her sweet fruit of life.
My love for you is everlasting
As you nourish my need for a wife.
God gave man a woman to adore
And a woman a man to respect.
God gave us children we love till death
To provide for, cherish and protect.
Until it’s dawn and the shadows flee
I will hold you close and ponder
Our life together past and present
And may our future be blessed by wonder.
Relationships are the greatest predictors of happiness
Healthy ones tend to support our joy and appreciation.
The best way to keep mentally healthy, happy and strong
Can be summed up by love, trust and admiration.
One of the most rewarding things, each of us can do
Is the acknowledgment of others and their fears.
To promote their happiness and sense of worth
By our love, concern, laughter and tears.
Staying eager to display are willingness
To recognize our support from others.
Where would we be without the people we love
Friends, mom, dad, grandparents, sisters and brothers.
We treasure our relationships and pray to maintain them
As they give us our passion and purpose in life.
Cherishing our family, our faith, our country
Our honor, our husband or wife.
