The Adventure of Love

We never know

What will come next.

There are so many opportunities

To extend the love

We have for each other.

Sometimes, it is easy.

Those are the happy times,

What most call, the good times.

But, there are other times,

That are even better.

It is those times,

When it takes work,

Lots of work.

When it is not comfortable.

When we have to stretch ourselves.

When we mess up.

We have to forgive each other,

For the ways we fall short.

And none of it depends on

What either of us do.

It is a God-given blessing.

The heart and the mind

Working together,

In a beautiful dance.

Sometimes, we don’t feel it,

And, then, the mind has to step in

And say, didn’t you? Don’t you?

Isn’t it worth it, in the end?

It takes discipline,

And without the dedication,

Loyalty and commitment,

It would never happen,

And the heart provides the fuel.

The heart says, it’s worth it.

Keep going.

You’ll be glad you did.
