Fay Slimm






The suchness of love's fragrant devotion

lies in ways

its needed sweet potion is made.

Being tenderly constant wears well with

most couples

without which contentment can fade.


Distrust often sucks strength from good


for doubt renders efforts inactive.

Thru' constant negligence love will stale

if it counts

much cost in the tolerance factor.


Yes love's future success lies in the way

truth brews trust,

then enduring solutions are made.

    Yes, as Alan says - but why do I use about a million words (sometimes) when five might do?! heehee.
