MARRIAGE

Marriage is an instrument
designed to be played upon
by twenty fingers, and which
when tuned with delicate precision
by human love and empathy
is capable of exalting souls
and moving mountains; however
the music is composed by two artists
the songs are sung by two mouths
and the martial concert is directed
by two conductors
thus the longed-for-achievement
of perfect harmony demands
a deliberate and calculated
double self-sacrifice
that from this union of two
there may arise
perfect oneness.

    brilliant words there! I guess all married ppl and to-be-married need to read that one! There's alot of greatness in those words that can truly protect and save many Marriages out there.

    ur a blessed one Margie!

  2. Margie,
    I liked it. Isn't this what makes all marriages work and last a long long time? I look at all the couples I know who have been married for years and years and this is what I do believe has brought them to a union and a togetherness. Very well done.

  3. 'Marriage is an instrument

    Your TRUTH so beautifully presented. It is the appreciation of the diversity, the need for orchestration, each with its own expression, sharing a vision, a purpose, an intent, that defines the oneness. Never static always in a dynamic flux...

  8. What wonderful, true lines Margie!

    You've said it all - everything that a young couple starting out on the journey of marriage needs to keep in mind.
    But also a wonderful reminder for those of us that have been married for years. :)

  9. Hi Margie-

    We seem to be traveling in the same blog circle :-) - I delightfully run in to you . :-) I thought i would stop by and say "hello". I really like your poetry. I too am blessed with contentment and freedom in my marriage. Although I "paid my dues" to get here. My Dad would say, "Gimpy (my nic-name), you finally got it right"!!!) My Dad passed almost 25 years ago. I will visit often and hope you will stop by my blog when you have a monent.

    Love and peace
    Gail

  10. Hi Keshi
    You are just too kind in your response to this poem!
    I don't know about there being greatness in my words but that you think so makes me very glad!
    I just wrote what I know and what I believe about my marriage.

    Yes, I am blessed and always have to remember that!

    Thank you, dear Keshi for the wonderful comment!

  19. Margie I believe there r only vew few marriages in this world that really mean something n r based on LOVE. And Im pretty sure ur's is one of them. Cos I know the kind of person u r and how much u value n luv ur family.

    With me, it's altogether a different story LOL!

  22. Very nice,
    the base element that brings happiness is sacrifice...and it seems an old word..only the old as you and me understand it! :)

    so many women choose to stay unmarried and so many divorces i see around here,

    well its all a matter of their personal choice,

    wishes,
