Marriage is Sacred and Binding

If I knew then what I know now
My marriage would be bliss. 
What I’m about to say you won’t 
Want to miss. Marriage is for life,
Till death each will part, through 
Sickness health, and adversities,
Think twice before you make a start.

Marriage is sacred and binding
It is God’s plan from the start.
No longer me nor I, we both share
The pie. Ordained by the father the
Almighty on high.

We are unique, a work of art, yet not perfect
 Just a work in progress. Follow it through
And in the process, taste victories stand the test.
Don’t throw in the towel, when things don’t
Seem right, stand up to the challenge and don’t
Give up the fight.

Show love and affection, communicate 
Just to name a few. Once part of my experience
And the essentials I failed to do. Tell her that 
You love her, even if said a hundred times before,
Stop the enemy in his tracks, don’t leave an open door.

Teeth and tongue will bite an old phrase and 
So very true. Again I’m not perfect I don’t 
Know about you? Now it’s paramount that my 
Marriage, last come hell or high water,
I’m in for the journey, the long haul, no
Time to falter.   



Please note: I do believe there are great marriages
And individuals who are very happily married, but
Let’s face reality; sadly some do not always blossom
for whatever reasons. My poetry are based on my life 
experiences, and not geared at any one.

    God knows the plans he has for us, I am so glad i found him when I did, I would not change anyhting for the world, famlies that pray together stay together, it's true we study together and it brings us closer to God and to each other. a thre stranded cord is not easily broken. with God in the centre of everything we have Love and peace harmony anyway A beautiful poem it is true what you say, Love is a gift fform God, we should look after it. God bles you from diane

    a great poem abe, so true are your words, marraige is for life so may take it all for granted, I have had tough times as you know but when one chapter ends God always opens a new page in life, God brough me and Joshua together i think thats why it works and the bond is strong as we keep God in the centre of our life and put him first in everything, I am living proof if we make our own choices in life we fall flat on our butt LOL, once I found God I ran with it and never looked back. cont...
