I love you because of who I aspire to become

When I look into your heart and feel the depths of your soul,

I love you for the way we pull ourselves up

Through the eye of each tornado that comes to pass,

And how every time I turn around,

It is you, who is here beside me,

I love you for all the things

You probably think I shouldn't...or wouldn't...or couldn't,

And I love you for all the tomorrows in my life

That sprouted from the seeds of each day we shared,

I love you because through this love for you,

I learned that I have no choice in this life,

But to love,

And if you should ever not be here, 

For some utter fluke of possibility,

I will love you ...still,

For whatever remains.

So true...but we can control

So true...but we can control who we allow to inspire us, i think, KD. If we see that we are no longer growing from a relationship, we have the pwer to release a person from the place where we elevate them as something that contributes to our greater "worth" as an individual. Some people have what it takes to see us through the extra mile of going above and beyond even our own aspirations. They inspire more tolerance, more patience, more strength, courage, fortitude. And that is what it is about. Not a good job, a great salary, lots of friends, or anything other of worldly possession. It is about growth as a person where the real riches of life lie. Because when we break off a relationship because we have grown apart, or when we "take a break" from anyone in life...those are the only things we have to gain that are good and lasting, and live on and on in all those lives we touch as long as walk the earth...and who knows maybe after as well!!! Thank you for your kind words and time to read my love poem. 

 

Agree??

Loved it.

I loved this poem. You have such depth and abundance of your love. I like how you show what unconditional love is and let your hopeless romantic side run free. I like that you're not scared to talk about your feelings and have the courage to show it. Keep writing.

I find the different

I find the different perspectives very intriguing. I will also admit that yes... Religion does play a part in my way of thinking. Very strongly in fact! I think I often run into the problem of coming across as arrogant or even self righteous... Two of perhaps some of the absolute most disgusting qualities (I think). Each and every one of is raised so differently... 15 years is a long time. I commend you on finding a system that works for you! Who am I or anyone else to say it's a broken or bad system when it's clearly worked?!? :) enjoyed the discussion very much. Thanks for it all!

Also, please keep in mind that not only have I never been married but I am also only 19. Haha sometimes things don't work out in practice the way they are meant to in paper. (And I know that)

Congrats on popping the question! This is a lovely beautiful poem. :)

Thank you Daniel. Actually,

Thank you Daniel. Actually, it's been a very long engagement, (15 years...lol) and neither of us minds. Things happen when they happen. (It's about love, not marriage).

A fifteen year engagement?

A fifteen year engagement? Hmmmm... Which of the two of you is afraid of commitment? Generally the answer is the man. :P Or perhaps that is not the reason? Woman like security... A legally binding contract Offers that. (to a degree) congradulations anyways... I would never last 15 years hahaha >.< but I am not permitted sex until marriage either, which no doubt is a VERY powerful motivator ;)

Marriage may seem wonderful

Marriage may seem wonderful to people who have never been married. We have both been there done that, plus some, plus some more. Marriage is all about legalities. Lots of legal binding garbage and a lot appeasing everyone else but yourself. Love is about loving which is what we have been doing. We're also two extraordinary individuals in a situation that few would ever be capable of understanding. But I love the fact that you have the balls to wonder and ask. That says something for you Daniel. So thank you! :-)♥

 

We don't believe in that "waiting for marriage crap", Daniel. Like I said, this is not about appeasing anyone but us. No one else is in the relationship..me and him, no family friends.. no body runs our relationship but us.

 

Now doesn't that sound better than all that phony stuff??? Sure does to us.

Well, if you have been going

Well, if you have been going for 15 years then it cant be all that bad can it? I do understand many of the stresses of marriage though I have never been maried. I grew up in a die hard, traditional, extremely conservative family... many would say judgmental... many would say overly protective/controling of children. My whole life has been geared toward marriage, and so through teachings and time, (brainwashing some may say), it's symbol has taken important meaning in my life. Not important for love of spouse, but rather for care of children. I suppose that if children are not a factor... even I might be convinced of marriage being unimportant to a healthy romantic relationship, even for the rest of a couples lives. Most of the time marriage is for the woman, not the man. This you know better than I perhaps as you have done it all before. I find these things so extremely interesting and hope that NONE of my comments threatens or offends you. :) I love your poems BTW :P keep up all of the great work

Yes, I totally understand the

Yes, I totally understand the desire to want to have marriage and the pressure that society places around it. I was just saying that it's been up on he pedestal for way too long, and at is why none are working out anymore. I too was raised to believe it is some "magic little piece of paper" that makes a relationship more worthy....more loving, more everything. It doesn't. There are just so many damn legal strings ties into it, that it has become a "convenience" I think, more an anything. Like you said, and I agree....very important for small children, another one is it makes it easier to get a joint healh insurance policy that it is individually, another thing is wills, another is taxes, the list goes on and on....until it's sort of like..."well, now wait a minute...you mean to tell me we weren't good enough before because we loved each other "just because we loved each other", but now because we're getting society's little  magic piece of paper it makes us "more worthy" somehow?? It's really very insulting to anyone with any integrity, and even more for two people who have been through what we have been through. 

 

Daniel, never feel uncomfortable to ask me a question. I havemore respect for those who ask, than forhose who just assume or hear half of the story and think they know he whole picture.

 

 

So have you found any "qualified canadates"? ;-)

OH! haha I absolutley have!

OH! haha I absolutley have! ;) thanks for asking! I think that you and I just may see eye to eye on this... im just not quite sure yet. Marriage should never be a statement of ones love. It was never intended to be that from the beginning and should not mutate to that now. I feel young people want to make a statement out of it... something big and flashy to brag about. As if a piece of paper now validates thier caring. As if now thier love is official.

nightlight1220's picture

Exactly. Think that's awesome

Exactly. Think that's awesome you understand that without being married yet. I sure didn't until I was. But yes...EXACTLY RIGHT!! It is not a "certificate of validation" at all...in fact, so many times...it is the opposite. So many people marry for money it is sickening if you ask me.

 

Cool you have "prospects" :-)

BTW... you may wonder as to

BTW... you may wonder as to why I would wait for sex until marriage. Part of it is (as im sure you've guessed) is because abstinence was drilled into my head along with being told it was the "right" thing to do. But the other part and the way that I look at it is this: That a marriage is in a way a trade.... Each person giving a part of themselves to the other. For the man it is his money and material goods and for the woman it is love and affection and pretty much sex. Each side seeing the obvious value in the other. But what if a man can get sex without marrying? Why pay for what one can get for free? A marriage contract (apart from all the modern day inclusions) is a promise bound by law between two people... the man entitling the woman to property and money and the woman granting sexual exclusivity to the man and bearing his children. Sex before marriage very often times let the man take what he may without promising the woman any future security. The man may even in fact mean well... but in the rare event that disaster strikes or any other anomoly pulling the man away from supporting the woman occurs... she is screwed. Now i am by no means saying that you do not respect your partner... but I try to respect my partner by leaving her assests untouched until I am ready to step up and offer her something of equal worth.

I don't see it that way at

I don't see it that way at all. I do think that people should be monogamous just because self discipline is a good thing, and it actually makes sex much better to be forced to use ingenuity and learn every little cubby hole of each other's mind and soul in order to please te body. It is the only way to fully feel satisfied in a sexual union as far as I have found. But as far as being monogamous because it is supposed to be "proper" or "holier"....bah!! That's a croc. If you're only 19...you will see as you go along. Thing is... when you're young...it's all a game. When you reach maturity....you're scoping out someone who you will hope is there when you need your damn ass wiped. Believe me, me and my fiance both have been around the block a few times in our younger years.... but we have both mellowed out considerably...and we know too well the only people who are going to be there through thick and thin....me and him. That's the honest reality for everyone. Who is there when the going gets touh...."grab that gal, Daniel, and hold on tight!!" ;-)

 

If you are 19 and already going for "assets" and thinking about money instead of enjoyment together... oh Daniel...you need to get married quick so you can getdivorced a few times and learn the ropes. You can't take it with you when you go dear!!! The trick to it is be happy as possible and never have regrets. All that talk about money is just a wimpy way for people to face that one day they will be old, wrinkled, and dead. If a woman is a woman...she needs no man to leave her money. She is independent. 

 

Thx for the chat. Its been fun and got me enjoying my age... lol. So glad those younger years are done!! Whew!!
