Recapture the Feeling We Felt

I’m fighting with you 
    in a déjà vu 
        of a fight we had before.
I try to remember 
    that day in September 
        and the wedding dress you wore.

As the years went by
    we forgot how to try 
        to forgive and to forget;
Now we’re nearing the end
    of being best friends; 
        a conclusion we would both regret.

Do you think we can turn 
    and try to re-learn 
        how to love each other instead?
Stop all the fighting, 
    the bickering and biting 
        and revisit each other in bed.

Not all the history is bad; 
    there was a time we were glad 
        to be called a husband and wife;
Recapture the feeling we felt 
    when the nuptials were dealt 
        and we united for the rest of our life.

We might get a surprise 
    how a compromise 
        so easily we can reach;
If we both admit 
    this silly fight to quit 
        and learn what to our kids we tried to teach;

That family, 
    which includes you and me, 
        deserves our patience and our care;
Which is something that we, 
    or so it seems to be, 
        for each other lost the ability somewhere.

    - Marriage is not a "bed of roses" ..... is the love big enough, we will be able to find harmony and goodness back. - Take care of each other, respect and loyalty. - A very good poem, Joe ! - oxox // Anne-Lise :)
