​Ode to Marriage

The moment you met, it was crystal clear,
Forever a couple, you are destined to be,
Promises you make and promises you hear,
Marriage not a prison, it sets you free.

Not always bliss, it can be tough,
Conflicts happen and tears are shed,
Life isn’t constant rainbows and fluff,
You bicker and bark – the fire is fed.

Working together in partnership,
The resolution is key to it all,
Don’t despair each time you trip,
It’s how you get up, not how you fall.

Work hard and show your husband or wife,
You will love and respect them all your life.
