|Strong relationships require strength.
Each must be the one who makes things work.
Vested in a love, one ought to love,
Embracing what one else would be enduring.
No love survives a marriage but by will.
Years of love accumulate, at length
Evolving into fate. The frantic search
Abates, one finds one's yes, and it will prove
Resilient. One is settled in one's mooring,
Singing, yearning, dreaming, dancing still.
