soul mates

The sunday scribblings prompt is soul mates..
This is a poem I wrote a few years ago that I thought was fitting to re-post
for this prompt.


We declared I do I do I do
We promised 'I'll always love you'
young pillow talk idealistic dreaming
romance rapture euphoric gaze gleaming
guarded inner identities comfortably revealed
vows before friends and god properly sealed
heart and soul-mates, our spirits happily unite
then life's bumpy road inflicts a challenging plight

like a random coin flip chance had tossed
woes force some to abandon vows seek divorce
still others sustain, dance the to and fro
give and take hold on tight don't let go
ups downs sickness frustration
sadness stress financial devastation
raising kids extremely crazy
work ceaseless, love-life lazy

perseverance through thick and thin
Love comes Full circle, rapture again
faith devotion patience strength-galore
love and passion grows all the more
ripening promises made years before
Sharing life as lovers and best friends
Empowered commitment brings amends
'Till death do we part' our traditional adage
believe treasure promise enduring marriage
Each bearing witness to each others significant life
Divine the intimacy of soul mates husband and wife

You are one talented lady! I like this more serious side of you as well as the goofball. Ok.. maybe the goofball more.

Your comments at my blog always have me (and Misty) lol'ing. I was thinking about coming up with a "Comment of the Week" award but you would always win. :P

Here's a poem by me..

When all else fails
And you need a new start
Have some bean soup
It'll make you fart

That's from me, Hot Buttah!
