Let’s Change the Way We Live


Let’s Change the Way We Live

Lately we’ve had our moments of doubt,

Where one of us would spout or shout,

I’m tired of fighting, so I’ll seek you out,

Let’s set up a date night,

Where we can dine by candlelight,

We’ll sit face to face and talk,

Not about the weather or about the kids,

But about us,

We’ll forget and forgive,

And change how we live,

Let’s talk about new beginnings,

Steps to be made,

You don’t want to stay,

 In the same emotional space,

So the past we’ll erase,

It’s time for us to move forward,

I’ve arranged for us to be alone,

 So we can focus on each other,

I’ll hold your hand for I want to be close,

I want to laugh and talk about good times,

Later we can walk by the lake,

See the moon’s reflection,

And of its beauty partake,

I’ll put my arm around you,

You can communicate without fear,

When you talk, it all becomes clear,

Just how lonely you’ve been,

That’s much to my chagrin,

 I’ll tell you I love you,

We’ll reset our path, you will see,

We’ll make our date night a priority,

We’ll laugh again like we were young,

And sing songs like they’ve never been sung,

And love, sweet love, will come our way,

We’ll work this out, come what may,

And learn to love deeply, forever and a day.

    1. Love is a basic human need but the effort to keep it up is lacking in many relationships. So once found, love should be bound, deeply within our hearts. The pleasure is mine, stop by anytime.

    2. Love will always surround you and wrap you in his arms.

    1. Congratulations regarding your upcoming marriage! It”s a time to celebrate and learn how to overcome ego in order to love deeply. You don’t want your spouse to be like fish. After a few days the fish begins to stink and it’s time to toss it out. Marriage was designed to be a lifetime. But like a garden, in order to produce fruit, it needs TLC and lots of work. I hope your garden (marriage) is truly blessed and both of you are committed to working through the rough times as well as the good. Oh, yes, a good sense of humor helps. Dan

    1. Since life only goes around once, consider each day a reset button with a fresh start built in. It’s a choice what you do with that new day. Good luck with your choices.

    2. Never let life get too busy for relationships and enjoy the journey. No reset, no pause, but each day is new and fresh. Good luck.
