EVERY SO OFTEN

Every so often
there will be times
you will not comprehend
why I do some things I do.
But always comprehend…
I love you.

Every so often
there will be times
that you don’t understand
your own anger at me.
But always understand…
I love you.

Every so often
there will be times
when you don’t agree with my choices in life.
Sometimes I second guess them too.
But always agree…
that I love you.

God made us male and female.
He placed us
in different families,
unique cultures.
He cultivated our hearts
in different ways
Sent us off on different paths
only to converge them into one with our vows.

And above all,
above all other reality,
God gave us love.

Every so often
there will be moments
when you want to walk away.
And every so often
there will be times
when you feel ready to give up.

Love gets you through those times
Love gets me through those times
Unconditional love is our foundation
And our house will eternally weather
“Every so often…”
