Still sound in the night

Two trees bathed in light

Two drops of warm rain

United, everything to gain

Hope and fear divided by two

The world suddenly a different hue

Swans drifting on a quiet lake

One asleep the other awake

Math changed, differently done

One plus one now equals one

Listening to the birds outside

Nothing more to hide

Dog barking it’s getting late

He is only looking for his mate

Life in turmoil totally invert

Wearing the I love you shirt

Hot bodies excitedly entwined

Sparks shooting through the mind

No more alone, finally there

With awe I look at the ring I wear

      "Two drops of warm rain
      United, everything to gain"
      "Swans drifting on a quiet lake
      One asleep the other awake"
      So beautiful, so peaceful and so sweet. A happy marriage is such a blessing.

                    Amazing piece of writing which im sure resonates with all who are a part of or have been a part of the union of marriage. Certainly reminds me of what i am missing.

                    • FredPeyer

                      Thanks d a, what you are missing are the good parts, what you are not missing are the bad parts. Let's be realistic here, while I stand behind everything I write, there are things that do not get into print. No relationship is complete without some storms once in a while.

                      • dusk arising

                        Given a choice of mixed weather or no weather.. hmmmm i think i'd prefer the mixed.
