The Key to Love

My Love…
We made it through a major challenge, but stand stronger together now than before. Over time it’s inevitable we’ll face more troubles, but I promise you my love is true and strong. I’ll be there when no one else will. I will understand when others won’t… always.

The ability to comprehend not only
the spoken word
But those unspoken gestures,
The little things that say so
much by themselves.
The key to love is forgiveness…
To accept each others faults
and pardon mistakes
Without forgetting,
but with remembering
What you learn from them.
The key to love is sharing…
Facing your good fortunes
as well as the bad, together
Both conquering problems,
forever searching for ways
To intensify your happiness.
The key to love is giving…
Without thought of return
But with the hope
of just a simple smile
And by giving in
but never giving up.
The key to love is respect…
Realizing that you are
two separate people,
with different ideas
That you don’t belong to each other
That you belong with each other,
and share a mutual bond.
The key to love is inside us all.
It takes time and patience
to unlock all the ingredients
That will take you to its threshold.
It is the continual learning process
that demands a lot of work,
But the rewards are more
than worth the effort.
And that is the key to love.
