Love will stand

Written by: NGUH-NWEI FON

It takes time to fall in love;
It takes love to stand the time.
Through the changing times of life,
love changes the tides of time
and weather the storms of life.

Moments of joy and grieve may drift
in and out like sand on the seashore
but love is the solid rock on which
your marriage can anchor. 

The whims and caprices of emotion
may usher clouds of fear and doubt
but loves shines through like the sun
and keep your hearts and minds together.

Even when your matrimonial boat drifts far
offshore in the middle of confusion, against
the tempest of misunderstanding and despair 
trust love's compass to sail you back to the
shores of forgiveness and reconciliation.  

We fall in love when self, stoops and love stands.
Let self remain fallen and always, love will stand.
