Unbroken and Stronger

Okay, so technically I’m taking a break from blogging, but our 23rd Wedding Anniversary is coming up quick here, and I meant to post these two poems to my blog.  So I’m popping on for a quick post and THEN it’s back to my break.

 

Unbroken (Promise)

 

Another year

It goes so fast

For time it races

And days they pass.

 

Holding memories

And moment’s ends

Of love’s beginnings

And It’s bends.

 

For love is patient

And it’s kind

It weathers storms

It blooms in time.

 

It harbours no wrongs

And trust always

It hopes

It’s strong

For all of it’s days.

 

Another year

Another gift

To cherish

To hold

To treasure this.

 

For love isn’t selfish

It isn’t rude

It tempers anger

It calms

It soothes.

 

For love, isn’t jealous

And has no end

It’s the promise

The endurance

It’s the grace you extend

 

It’s the vows at the altar

So sweetly and softly spoken

It’s the years

It’s the tears

It’s the bands of gold

Unbroken.

[Written for our 23rd Wedding Anniversary]

 

 

Stronger

 

I haven’t always got it right

Sometimes I fought

When I shouldn’t fight

Sometimes things mattered

That didn’t matter at all

Sometimes I was blind

And I fumbled the ball.

 

You haven’t always got it right

Sometimes you fought

When you shouldn’t fight

Sometimes things mattered

That didn’t matter at all

Sometimes you were blind

And you fumbled the ball.

 

I guess you could say that were equally yolked

We’re both a little cracked

And both a little broke

But there’s nowhere I’d rather

Spend the rest of my days

Than with the man that I love

Within his warm embrace.

 

Through the thick and the thin

Through the rough and the tumble

In the peace and the calm

If we’re riled and we rumble.

 

For with time

Our love has strengthened

Just as tea takes time to steep

Left in longer

We’ll grow stronger

‘Cuz you’re just my cup of tea.

(And yes I meant yolked–not yoked)  It’s a yolk!  I was yolking!  These are the yolks people!)
