I loved this poem of lasting love, a love filled with sweet memories as well as a few sad, bad times.
Being able to overcome the bad, enriches the good in every marriage. That's what is meant by the wedding vows, to encourage the happy couple to enjoy the happy moments and to work out the bad.
No one is perfect, so mistakes will be made, wrong words will be spoken, but a loving couple will pull through those sad times.
Loved your poem Ron, it was a well written sonnet to marriage
Oh my goodness you do it again... Bring tears to my eyes you have such a simple yet complex way of detailing something so poignant and even passionate. I can feel the sadness yet the love in this poem wonderful my new favorite!
This is so beautiful with a hint of melancholy. A story told with such a great poetic sense. The pictures you have created are one of love and loss. It's such a nice story of caring, but at the same time, one that portrays menial house tasks in a different way. In that sometimes it is the little things that count.
as always its a pleasure to read your work, this actually hit a little too close to home for me just because i lost my grandmother in '08 and this describes my grandparents very much. both of my grandparents were from england, but they grew up there during the war so they spend alot of time in ireland with family. this was a beautiful piece and im so glad i read it today it lifted my spirits a little.
This is truely beautiful and sad at the same time. Mothers do put themselves last as my mother in my poem "Pillow of Fear" did.
A beautiful sad love story. A poetic story writer, you do this so well. I wonder if like me at times you write of your own moments in life. Love reading your poem, thank you for sharing with us your talent. Desi
