Together always, through thick and thin
vows were recited, a marriage begins

The day is filled with happiness and love
and blessings were received from the Heavens above

Man and woman became husband and wife
and start a long journey on this thing called life

Each day started with hugs and kisses
along with hopes, dreams and wishes

Walking hand in hand, each other we hold
telling ourselves that our love wonít grow old

Flowers were sent and Valentines too
romance was abundant, and lifeís troubles were few

Those first years of marriage, the love never strayed
and soon plans for a family began to be made

Mother and father replaced husband and wife
and devotion was shifted to a tender young life

The time for each other began to perish
and was reserved for the young ones we cherish

Children grow up, bringing wonder and thrills
they also became a great test of wills

No longer filled with that same enchantment
we began to take one another for granted

Valentines and flowers were no longer sent
and time together was no longer spent

Walking hand in hand became a thing of the past
as life began to move so swift and so fast

Yet to each other we stayed strong and true
and love each other like itís still brand new


For that love was still there, we just needed to know
that there are different ways for it to grow

Donít ever forget about love and caring
about the ones whoís lives we are sharing

Together always, through thick and through thin
lifeís journey isnít over, it has yet to begin

I enjoyed this very special poem of love between a husband and a wife. You've captured beautifully all the "different ways for it to grow".

Rhymed couplets, it's an artform, nice work.
