Marriage binds the couple

Awash in a mother’s tears

They are centrally connected

Like the blades of sewing shears


Forever bound to one another

With a love shared of the heart

No matter how each may move

Yea, never shall they part


Woe to what stands between them

Whatever storms they weather

Nothing can resist their strength

When they work together

    That’s an excellent poem Osborne ! Love it 👍🤝

  2. The key word in your poem is “work” together. Like anything, a relationship is always a work in progress, always changing, and it does take work for two people (in any relationship) to accept change in the other. Very enjoyable poem!

    Lovely and oh so true as well. It takes both working at it. I really love the first stanza Brad the whole poem is nicely written. It is almost like a song when you read it out loud. Love Jonikins
