The Victory of Love

A marriage of convenience creates spectators...
The concessions might be tempting,
But are often stale.

A marriage without respect creates rivalries...
Alliances are formed,
And members are carelessly traded.

A marriage without love creates sidelines...
One or both will find themselves benched,
Wishing they were in the game.

A marriage without tenderness creates injury...
It crushes hope and breaks confidence,
The damage is long lasting.

**********

A marriage with deep connection creates a team...
Completely dedicated to a common goal,
The victory of love.

    1. When the coach pisses you off, as they often do, you fume and steam and then remember they're with you all the way. :)

  3. Very nicely written. Like Dr.Cox says at least one of the partners have to want to keep the marriage going.

    1. Melynda, no wedding looming. Bryan became an ordained minister and he's performing a wedding ceremony for a friend tomorrow...just got me thinking about marriage...but believe me, you will all know WHEN that day comes. :)

  8. This is beautiful, did you write it yourself?
    Such true words, and each line resonated with me. Every single line resonated with me.
