Hmmm. I think we need a better title than this.
A true partnership is worth the effort
A true partnership is worth the effort,
it is more precious than water.
Hearts that trust, and look to amend themselves,
not the other. Connection,
not perfection is not their goal.
They employ the warm touchings
of various states of nakedness.
as they work in tandem to create a future
of surprise and delight.
They strive to shape a hopeful world of peace
to honour the love that they are making.
They are unafraid of uncertainty, or of poverty;
they care not for riches;
for each has received the gift of the other.
It is more than enough.
When they struggle, it is together.
They sacrifice without keeping score
and count it a privilege for the sake of love.
Forgiveness and generosity become the mortar
for the joining of their lives,
and they live with celebration,
gratitude and faith.
