Eternal Love

spring blossoms’ scents carry as we hold hands
young lovers with dreams of lasting passion
little attention is paid to the questions:
     will this love last?
     will we always feel this ardor?
     
after marriage a new type of love is learned
wee faces, gifts from heaven, bring smiles
but questions become more clear
     will we live to see them grow?
     will we be able to provide for them?

unconditional is the nature of true love
partners who share life’s challenge brave the winter together
compromise is the key to harmony and answers are found
     
regardless of the pain encountered 
affection sees us through the storms
passion changes forms, but true love lasts eternally

    Eternal Love, is there really any other, Smile, no, Just Precept Love then the human concept of it. Relationship need to changs occasionally, but we don't stop loving each other. Agape, Moses
