In your writing here i see no arrogance at all. Anyone who has shared romantic love will surely understand the pure joy which gives one the feeling of wanting to shout it from the rooftops!
Simples!

This is stunning, and congratulations on your 21st anniversary. Truly inspiring.
My ex husband after ten years sadly came home out of the blue and said he hasn’t loved me for 18 months and lefty into the arms of another woman. Even to this day I regrettably say I’m still not 100 percent over it and it’s has been two years since.
So readying work like this, the reality yet shows a that ‘if’ you want to, you really can put the work in and work things through.
Very happy for you.
Great emotive read.

Just beautiful and so sad but so pleased to read that you both worked through it. Marriage has to be worked at and I\'m pleased to add that after 50 years my wife and I are as strong in our love for each other as we have ever been.

Very thoughtful. It\'s so easy to simply disregard nature, not thinking of the floating island of trash in the ocean that grows a little every day, etc. Thanks for sharing.

I Pray
Jhe said:

This is sweet & deep poem.
I especially like the lines:
\"I worry about what is right or wrong,
How to teach it ( ... )
I pray his heart stays true and I\'m always able
To reach it.\"

life can be a complicated lesson, and sharing what we\'ve learned can also be tricky, especially when trying to word things so our kids don\'t notice the \"age gap\"
...and how to make them aware of hazards without scaring them out of living?
It\'s quite a balancing act!

& if they become jaded, or worse, if we make them jaded, reaching (or being let into) their hearts can become difficult...
But in praying that they never grow out of their open-mindedness, you\'re saying there\'s still hope, not just for your family\'s future hapiness, but for everyones, and that\'s a wonderful thing to share.
Thank you

That made me smile :). I needed that. Very beautiful. I love ladybugs. Although here where I live they are everywhere.

Walking by the lake
Jhe said:

I\'m glad you decided to \"throw\" this poem together; i think it\'s lovely,
and not simply because i also like lakes and ladybirds :)
but because its rhythm has a very natural feel ...it flows like the peaceful scene it describes.
A very relaxing piece.
Best wishes, J

Appreciating nature is all a part of the process of life. Seems like you connected with it. Awesome imagery. Thanks for sharing.

Laura said:

SLR,
I believe that if we teach our children by our example, they’ll be fine! They will stumble along the way, just as we (their parents) do/have! We need to tell them that it is ok. Stumbling is part of the journey!
I agree with Goldfinch60’s comment! It helps for them to have family members they can depend upon! We need to support them and be there when they need us! I know it’s a cliché, but it does “take a village” to raise a child!

An awesome relatable write.

I can\'t see if you are male or female from your profile. You\'re a \'good man\' or \'good woman\' by the tone of this poem :)

Beautiful written, worry is normal, our hearts are walking around in the world and it’s our uncontrollable insitc to worry for them.
Great job.

We should always be there for our children and (in my case) grandchildren, we must be the person to whom they know they can come. Good write.

Great costruct and format. I definitely noticed the rhyme scheme and how it played through each set of lines, and how it paired nicely with the deeper content of your poem. Well done.

I really connect with your message - I find really hard to stop just BE myself with trying. Maybe it\'s shame? Maybe it\'s ambition? I don\'t know but I\'m thinking about it now :)

Most of all it reminds me of a line from a song called the \"The Ultracheese\", where the writer reflects lost friendships, past experiences, and the social context of them all. The line is

\"Trust the politics to come along
when you were just trying to orbit
the sun
when you were just about to be
kind to someone
\'cause you had the chance\"

Hollow Hypocrisy
Laura said:

SLR,
Spot on! Yes, it is “the ones who commit the crimes while pretending to be righteous and spiritual should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.” This happens in all faiths! It’s up to us to show love and kindness. We can have a relationship with our own God...no middle person! We can follow our own beliefs and not condemn those who believe differently! The most important thing is to be humane and respect one another and not cause strife!
An excellent write!

Part of what turned me away from Religion. The hypocrisy. This hits really close to home for me
