give it time

love grows by leaps and bounds

serendipity of marriage

Love…again.

Standard

I loved him
I was possessive
I was crazy
For him I lived

He did not care
He ignored me
I pined for his love
He could not see

Then I grew apart
It was not worth the pain
I became a different person
For heartbreak I was not game

And the years flew by
And we became old
And then I saw a change
Unheard of, untold

He became dependent on me
I was all he had
Was love blooming again
It was all good, not bad.

And in the last lap of life
It was nice to have him back
It was definitely worth the wait
After all two children we had.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Not for Thee.”

Not for Thee

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received that you wouldn’t give to anyone else? Why don’t you think it would apply to others?

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/not-for-thee/

A sweet girl twenty

So innocent and naive

Oblivious to the world

But she knew how to behave

 

Was shown a guy by her parents

They wanted to marry her off

Not once she objected

She knew she was tough

And  today she is happy

That she listened to her parent’s advice

For the man was her knight in shining armour

And she was his beloved wife

 

Not many want to marry young

But my life has been lovely

That advice sure worked for me

But maybe it’s not for thee

Married Young.
