Compromises

When you take two individuals
Strong in their ways and minds
Life is not always restful
There are those days when you could scream
And shout at the temerity of another’s actions

Things do not run smooth
When the forcefulness of your nature
Will not be tamed

These times
When patience is stretched to breaking
Harsh words and insults abound
Stretching the fabric of your love

Take time to consider your selves
And the very selfishness which each of us has
Hidden deep and dark in the back of our minds

A small word or gesture can mend things
A laugh…a smile
A kiss perhaps…
Or mearly a touch of a hand
Enough to show that you care
That the harmony will and can be restored
And that even in the storm
There is still a safe haven in each other

The love is never doubted
Even though the tears make you question
People do not stop loving
Just because they cannot agree

Never sleep on an arguement
Watch your words and your meanings
Do not hurt one another blindly
Listen when you can
And then on waking
When you are calm and thoughtful
Discuss your differences
And find resolution
For there is always an answer
If you love each other

Remember that the very srtengths you admire
Are often the ones which make you scream
But do not change each other
Merely change together
Learn to accept your differences
And do not listen to others
Who perhaps are jealous of your strength in each other
For you are the union
And all things may be fixed
Without interference
And with commitment…
