Love starts from friendship with a laugh and a smile
Adventure, experience, and time carry it a mile
With each shiny ray of light
Comes two smiles of delight

Two hearts so different, so rare
Join together this day to bear
The weight, the struggle and the fight
That could carry them into the night

He may stare an angry glare
She may declare your unfair
But soon with hearts intertwined
Anger and hurt are redefined

Then a quiet moment, a peaceful calm
As they stand together on the Lordís palm
Each thankful for their fate
That the Lordís blessing did create

That is why love desires
Godís blessing to inspire
A lifetime of hope and peace
For which only he can release

For two lovers, two friends
Love has no ends
When it begins with a laugh and a smile
Adventure, experience and time will carry it a mile

This poem is dedicated to my husband of eight wonderful years who has both taught and encouraged me on my path of love. Without his special ways I would not be the God loving Christian I am today. For all that he has done for my kids and my life I am truly blessed.

I enjoyed your piece. I see you dedicated it to your husband of 8 years. My wife and I have been married 28 years and I saw our marriage in your poetry. It hasn't all been one big, happy clam-bake but in the end, the Lord has blessed, and I am a very lucky guy to have the wife he has given me.

Very nicely done. A couple of minor things: "Comes" should be "come" and "your" should be you're" but these are little fixes that don't take away from the lovely sentiment and good verse. Good job.
