love, responsibility, burden and loyalty

love is the spell your under
when you give your heart and mind
it sometimes last a little while
and for some it last a life time

responsabilities to care for
obligations to pay for
always fighting just like war
take away the joys

burdens have been carried for years and years
sleepless night because of our fears
it's inescapable when things are shared
the unforgiven things you did

loyalty that lasted fifty years
the trust that grew when things were through
the reason to wake and live another day
the oneness of mind that comes with age

    I always think it is a miracle when a couple are able to grow old together and still care. How does sit happen? It is elusive and I've never found the secret. This says so much and the message I take as my own!

    look at the title . that's how it happens. but i left one thing out; forgiveness. but that is reserved for the strongest of men and women. one of which i am not. so like you less than 100% is not enough.
