Marriage

The ocean calms me
envelopes me
supports me when I need to sail
Powerfully, it won’t hesitate
to remind me of my place
or comfort me when I fail

Its waves sing along in time
mirroring my mood
or challenging me to improve
We laugh in the shallows
or toil through the depths
almost always perfectly in step

Every day is beautiful
a work of heart
and trying…

The muse of my life; my happiness
and though your face isn’t
peering out from every poem
Sometimes, we are artists
making makes us happy
in each other’s company we’re free

Sometimes, we’re salty
Sometimes, we don’t say
all we need to say, straight away
but it flows out in the end
and we’re back on course again

This life we made together
our voyage into the future
You my love, you are the sea
Please never leave
Raise your loving waters
and swaddle them around me

Every day is beautiful
a work of heart
and trying to be
my very best for you…

    1. Thanks Kim. I feel like there is probably a bit too much going on in this one but, still, I enjoyed writing it and I’m so pleased you enjoyed.

    1. 🐳 Thank you Lia! I’m so glad you picked that out, I’ve had that line swimming round in my head for a couple of weeks now. I was trying to think of the most pithy way to describe marriage and ‘a work of heart’ just seemed so apt. Thanks for commenting x

      1. Well it’s absolutely perfect. The whole poem is beautiful!! My other favourite part was this stanza:

        “Sometimes, we’re salty
        Sometimes, we don’t say
        all we need to say, straight away
        but it flows out in the end
        and we’re back on course again”

        Yes it’s all about going with the flow and staying the course, I believe. Wonderful!! 🌊🙌
