A Binding Relationship


Cherish the values of a binding relationship,
The holiness of character and a genuine life.
See the beauty in your state of affairs,
And avoid situations that may lead to strife.

Tread the moral way you set for yourself,
Always retain love within your heart.
Comfort one another in times of despair,
And may you never falter or be apart.

The years will pass by quickly,
There will be an awkwardness in your pace,
But your vows will be exalted in your mind,
And will bring smiles to your wrinkly face.

    A very nice poem Joe, Relationships will only endure with the
    effort that you put into it. Of course love should be the basis that
    holds it up. Smile to your wrinkly face (a good line-made me smile) !
    Appreciate you sharing this. (Report) Reply

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
