Suppose to be....Patient
Tolerant of mood swings and emotional strain
Acceptable of temperament
Understanding of a troubled past and bruised thoughts
Understanding when to touch your body my fingertips burn
Why we laugh until there are only tears?
Why we fight because of unsolicited fears?
Why we have difference of opinions that rage like a tiger trapped in a cage?
Why we have the desire to be loved so, that through it all we stayed?
Why? Because it is our love of another which we crave.
Because even when it hurts...passion ignites
short term sadness darkens our hearts
human mistakes with poor judgement can mend
you plus I is what is wanted in the end
waiting and wanting this happiness for so long
it is ‘you’ that I want to walk down the aisle with;
to ‘our song’
