A Marriage of Two
by Sylvia Chidi
(marriage poems - #1)

A marriage of two
is for love that is true

A marriage of two
is always something new

A marriage of two
happens sometimes out of the blue

A marriage of two
is worth it when its due

A marriage of two
is a marriage of trust
Many can find themselves lost
It can be an expensive cost

They are only very few
who have a clue
of when love accrues

A marriage of two
is about love making
It is not about
money raking

A marriage of two
can be bad
A marriage of two
can be sad
You should only be glad if
A marriage of two
is for love that is true


Marriage
by Phil Panebianco
(marriage poems - #2)

Marriage is the bond of two souls,
the fusion of two lives.
Marriage is the sacred vows of love and life,
the promise to always see things through.
Marriage is finding that person who completes you in every way,
a person who knows you, better than you know yourself.

Marriage is waking up every morning with a smile on your face, a sparkle in your eye.
Marriage is looking forward to every second spent together.
Every smile, every laugh, every tear, every hug, every kiss.

Marriage is finding that one person who inspires you.
That one person you never take for granted.
Marriage is finding your best friend.
The one friend you know, will never look down on you,never judge you.

Marriage is complete trust and commitment.
Two people who would do anything to defend, protect and honorone another, till their last breath.
Marriage is you and I growing together, happily in love, forever.


Love and Marriage
by Jay P. Narain
(marriage poems - #3)

Love - what is love?
Dreaming of impossible dreams,
Falling in love with love itself,
Endless desire of being with someone,
Chasing the mirage which seem so close but is so far away.

Marriage - what is marriage?
The reality of sunshine overwhelming romantic starry nights,
Agree to disagree on matters of life with underlying love,
Battle of sexes, hating the partner but awaiting the response of love,
The unity of two imperfect strangers as nearly perfect lovers in life.

Love - what is love?
Destitute heart in loneliness seeking a refuge,
Daydreaming of a lover in the times of a despair,
The heart thinks of you and only you,
The love is blind and sees nothing at all.

Marriage - what is marriage?
Not only showing the affection when making love,
But keeping it in heart and mind all the time,
Not only showing the marriage is made in heaven,
But keeping it on earth with mutual trust and devotion


Marriage
by Donna McCord
(marriage poems - #4)

Marriage is the joining of two bodies and two minds
Past mistakes are unwanted and better left behind
From this day forth you must take care of each other
You’ll learn to draw strength each day from one another

The first year is hardest but you must learn to adapt
Find your middle ground and the rest will work out
It’s a beautiful journey if you are dedicated
Time is your friend and will keep you educated

Learn from mistakes and heed this advice
Never bring them up and never try them twice
Appreciate each other and be verbally kind
Each day when the sun sets leave your anger behind

As your journey progresses and the children arrive
Remember to keep your marriage alive
Your children will grow up and leave the nest
Make sure your marriage doesn’t die from loneliness

By following these words you’ll find marriage is bliss
And you’ll find there is no better place than this
Home is meant to be your soft place to fall
And the love you project will envelope it all


Marriage: Stages to be Followed
by Mahfooz Ali
(marriage poems - #5)

First, marriage should be love
all encompassing, total, and free.
Love that grows stronger each day
soft murmurs of Thee, Thee, Thee.

Second, marriage should be sacrifice
giving of self, regardless of reward.
Gift gladly given, with open heart
shielded from life's harsh sword.

Third, marriage should be commitment
utter loyalty, deep to the bone.
Absolutely, no questions asked
faithfully promised, never alone.

Lastly, marriage should be forever
family bonded, yet all still free.
Lives joined with love, sacrifice, and commitment
an eternity promised with -
Thee, Thee, Thee

Marriage and Love
by Dennisa Davidson
(marriage poems - #7)

Marriage gives life to love and love gives life to marriage.

In marriage, love means:
To know in your heart you were meant only for each-other.
That Heaven grew you apart and brought you together after the time you were meant to be molded to fit each-other.
To discover what it is to be best friends forever.
To discover what it is to love someone more than yourself.
To discover you are actually only a half and how much you need the other to be complete.
To discover the bonds that form when times get tough.
To discover how much more joy is multiplied when there is someone you love to share it with.
Each day is a day of discovery, a day to build your love, a day to make your bond stronger.

Marriage is:
To together choose one way, not one's own way.
To respect and honor with love the other over oneself or anyone else.
To compromise with each-other but never compromising each-other.
To know you are loved, wanted and needed whether you are fat or thin, well or ill, chirpy or grumpy.
To live life's summer, winter, autumn and spring always being there for one another.
To blend as one that over the years you feel as one and speak as one.
To be savored like wine, enriched by the passing of time.
To honor Marriage is to honor its Maker. To commit in marriage is to commit to its Maker.


Have No Illusions
by Melanie James
(marriage poems - #8)

Have no illusions –
Life is challenging
Have no illusions –
Marriage is not easy
Have no illusions –
Sometimes you’ll question
Have no illusions –
You will find fault
Have no illusions –
This is marriage
Have no illusions –
You will work it out
Have no illusions –
Hardship brings strength
Have no illusions –
You are each other’s rock
Have no illusions –
Love will endure.


Freedom In Your Marriage?
by Richard Merrell
(marriage poems - #9)

Is there freedom in your marriage?
Or is there bondage bringing woe
Is there freedom in your marriage?
This is what I'd like to know.

For marriage is two people
Each sharing the other's love
Not telling each other how to live
Nor giving each other the shove.

For each is an individual
With free-will to be such;
Giving and receiving in their talents -
However much.

Having freedom to enjoy at times
What each may like to do;
Pleasing each other by attitude
Being happy for each too.

Standing by each other
When outsiders shoot the tongue
No matter what the cost might be
For freedom you're among.

So, is there freedom in your marriage?
I pray there is today,
For only in love's freedom -
Marriage will be for aye!
