COMMITMENT- (A dedication to my marriage to Elizabeth)

I still remember your broad smile in that white gown, darling Elizabeth,
When you walked down the aisle to meet me in the fully packed church,
To sing the ĎI do, till death do us partí lifetime vows of our hallowed covenant,
And the Pastor proclaimed us husband and wife before man and God,
And we entered together into the great institution of marriage life on earth.

So cool you were to advise me at our sacred honeymoon at the beach,
That love isnít the greatest word in marriage at all, but commitment.
I remember how I was taken aback by such a say from my Lady.
For I thought nothing beats love at all in marriage,
And thatís why I constantly said, ďI love you,Ē as the waves washed our feet.

You explained to me the true realities of commitment in marriage,
That I need it more than love to tighten our relationship and succeed,
For with commitment, you assured me in a soft voice, by my side,
That we can cling to our marriage even through thick and thin.

Selflessness, hardworking, giving, perseverance, caring, love, forgiveness and patience,
You noted them to me as being the real characteristics of commitment in marriage.
And above all you did not turn an eye away from God, our creator.
When you said that God is the final seal to a successful marriage.
Oh, darling Iím so delighted, but for now cling me in your warm arms and counsel me.
