creating a marriage that lasts

One of the places

There seems to be confusion

Making marriage last 

 

Forty-four years of marriage

With someone opposite me

Has been a problem to solve

How can she like me

 

She said, “I do not like you”

I said, “I do not like you back”

Now we have a problem

So what do we do

 

We have four children

Responsibilities here

Children we love and care for

Will the past dictate

 

My parents divorced

They could not figure it out

The children suffered greatly

So what do I do

I decided to face me

To see my problem not hers

 

I wanted us to be friends

The way it all started out

In seeking I understand

Barriers in me

 

 

I must deal with my issues

Seek understanding of me

Study personality

I needed insight

 

So the first place to begin

You must decide who you are

The person you want to be

Then state it clearly

  

Solitude is hard

It is part of the journey

Beginning with me
