Staying the course takes devotion

Being in love is wonderful and fine

But the addictive side of love can sometimes be blind

Some can easily tap into the emotion

Staying the course takes devotion

A dream of a family

And of beautiful things to come

Embracing a life in your arms

Seeing ahead to something beautiful

That came from the both of you

Gives a relationship substance

Gives it glue

Working together to build a wonderful life

The sacred bond of husband and wife

Reaching for something bigger then the both of you

Keeps hearts focused and true


  1. This is a beautiful poem, and you have a lovely site. I have enjoyed my visit, and will definitely be back!

  2. nice writing it brings out the quest of many.. I wonder sometimes how many achieve it..

  3. If it is the goal to be successful in your marriage, and keep your family together, then that is what you will do. If it is your goal to leave, then you will. It will always come down to CHOICE. Always.

  4. What beautiful words capturing love. I especially liked the line about love being addictive, isn't that so true?

  5. Wonderful poem!
