THE FORTRESS OF LOVE
Every marriage has its bumps in the road
And they can pop up at any time.
We must learn to navigate them safely
With fairness, faith and open mind.
No matter how far in your marriage you’ve gone
The highway of love has its rules.
The excitement of sex, trust and affection
Never tolerates self-serving fools.
They say marriages are made in heaven,
But so are tornadoes, lighting and thunder.
Cold hearts and hot heads never solve anything
They just destroy what we love by blunder.
Boredom, frustration, irritations and anger
Douse the spark between you and your mate.
More of the same fails to feed love’s flame
Till you wake up to find it’s too late
Human touch sustains the release of endorphins
For both the giver and receiver.
Never be afraid to hug your partner.
For the language of touch is a reliever.
Always remember to support your spouse
When times of dilemma arise.
The fortress of love will sustain your marriage
If you speak less and listen more, you’re wise.
By Tom Zart
Your lips make for a gentle kiss,
your arms make for a perfect hug.
Your hand is a perfect fit for mine.
You're the one I love having beside me,
you're the one I want to share my heart and life with.
I wish I knew what I did to deserve you,
because I would do it again.
By William P. Darnell Sr.
MARRIAGE 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 others 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.

I HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR FIFTY YEARS,
BUT IT SEEMS I JUST MARRIED LAST YEAR.
FIFTY YEARS MIGHT SEEM LIKE A LONG TIME.
BUT SUMMER NEVER SEEM TO LAST A LONG TIME.
THERE IS NOTHING THAT BRINGS SO MUCH HAPPINESS IN MARRIAGE.
AS THE THINGS YOU DENY YOURSELF FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR MARRIAGE.
NEVER EXPECT YOUR MARRIAGE TO BE ALL ABOUT LOVE.
FOR MANY A MARRIAGE HAVE CRASHED BECAUSE OF THE OTHER LOVER.
A PESKY BUTTERFLY MAY PERCH ON YOUR BEAUTIFUL ROSE.
EVEN THOUGH THE GARDEN IS FULL OF OTHER LONELY ROSES.
THERE ARE MANY THINGS YOU CANNOT CONTROL IN YOUR MARRIAGE.
BUT TRUST IN GOD CAN DO WONDERS FOR YOUR MARRIAGE.
THERE IS NOTHING LIKE A HAPPY MARRIAGE.
BUT THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE HAPPY IN THEIR MARRIAGE.
HAPPINESS HAVE NEVER WON ANY WAR.
IT IS SWEAT AND BLOOD THAT WINS WAR.
THEREFORE START EVERY DAY WITH A PRAYER TO GOD.
FOR YOU CAN NEVER WIN ANY WAR WITHOUT GOD.
it may have been a dream
but I dream of reality
it may have been only desire
but I believe you should be with me
it may have a crazed idea
something to calm our sorry hearts
its possibly a fantasy
to fill the lust in our hearts
it may have been only tricks
deceit of how I feel
it seems to be so outrageous
that I cant believe its real
or maybe its a lifetime
bound us together true
it could be a forever
binding me with you
Sometimes I like to pretend, things never came to a end. But over time, our love became a crime. I didn't know what we had, would ever end so bad. But then I knew things weren't right, when we started to fight. Now I walk down memory lane all the time, the pain is worst then committing a crime. We only caused eachother pain, but we were eachothers maine. I thought things would be alright, but I cried alot that night. I don't want things to change, without you my life is strange. You said you wanted me so much it started to hurt that you couldn't wait, now im just another person you hate. When you said you didn't care, I knew the person I loved was no longer there. You aren't the same, the new you is lame. We both fell, now it's hell. You use to always be here for me, like family. But now your nowhere in sight, things aren't right. Empty is all that I can feel, I still can't believe this is real. I didn't mean to let you get away, I didn't know what to say. Am i with the right guy, or am i telling myself a lie. I was afraid to loose what we had, but to you that choice was bad.
I wake up before the sun from a cozy bed
I walk outside and feel the crisp autumn chill
So I put a stocking cap on my head
I walk through the back yard
heading for the woods
doing something city boy
only wish they could
I arrive at my stand
and check the direction of the breeze
before I climb up ole faithful
a dying, dark barked maple tree
I make myself comfortable
as the sun stretches its arms
for the sky
producing iridescent colors
I live for the outdoor
and that's one of the reasons why
Not far behind me a freshly cut field of hay
in front endless rows of cornstalks fill the way
I begin to think of a tradition
My son and I on thanksgiving day.
he is still here with me
even though last November he passed away
I start hearing cars doors shut
its coming from over the hill
carrying an aroma of cinnamon
It's my favorite! Pumpkin pie
Justin, I'll be back, But for now Goodbye
A love poem filled with his words
Beautiful commitment , words to treasure
Combining their hearts and souls
Declaring before the world their intent
Wedding day, start of an adventure
A FEELING IN MY HEART HAS TAKEN OVER ME COMPLETELY, AND BOY YOU ARE THE STAR
TO COME INTO MY LIFE. YOU CAN TAKE ME. OF ALL THE GUYS I'VE EVER KNOWN, THEY'VE
NEVER BEEN AS WONDERFUL, SO SPECIAL AND SO SWEET TO ME. IN ALL THE DREAMS
I'VE EVER DREAMED, NO ONE HAS BEEN AS GOOD TO ME, AND YOUR THE ONE TO ANSWER
MY DREAMS. I FEEL YOU IN MY SOUL, YOUR HEART'S CARESSING ME SO DEEPLY. I'M UNDER
YOUR CONTROL. YOUR ALL I'LL EVER NEED. YOU CAN USE ME. OF ALL THE TIMES I'VE BEEN
ALONE, NO ONE HAS BEEN AS BEAUTIFUL, SO STRONG AND UNDERSTANDING TO ME. ALL THE
WAYS I CAN SEE NO ONE HAS BEEN AS GOOD FOR ME. AND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE THE ONE
WHY DO I BELIEVE THAT YOU BELONG TO ME.
The more you invest in love,
the more valuable it becomes,
where there's love,
nothing goes wrong.
The truth in love,
although it's hard,
to keep it for long.
A sound marriage in love,
it's not a word,
but faith and action.
The cure for love,
but not money as others hope.
Getting marriage for sex,
it's something special
like buying a fresh sweet cake.
Keeping love forever,
it needs to open your eyes,
patience and trust
for whom you love.
A successful love for all,
stick on one heart,
and made in Heaven!
Oh, Oh ,Oh!
Love is funny,
full of hills and stones.
But again are thunder,
tornados and hail,
as the wise men say.
