Persistence

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’
