Two Hearts - Poem

Two Hearts

I listen to your question,
And I’ll tell you from the start -
Despite my willing answer,
I’m sure to break your heart.

My face won’t always smile,
I’ll often wear a frown.
I won’t always be cheerful;
Sometimes I'll let you down.

There’ll be arguments and strife,
We won’t always agree.
I’ll tell you you’re being blind -
You’ll say that I can’t see.

I’ll say things that will hurt you;
Your silence cutting deep.
We’ll leave each other’s presence
To be alone and weep.

At times I’ll be frustrated,
You’ll drive me up the wall.
All the silly things you do,
Can't understand at all.

Aside from all the heartache,
And all the grief I cause,
There will be joy and laughter
Enough to make us pause.

The times we sit in quiet
And hold each others’ hand;
We needn’t say a single word,
We know and understand.

The sweetest hugs and kisses, 
Romantic moments shared.
The times we think so much alike,
We know we’re rightly paired.

Our lives bound by one purpose,
To serve the Lord always;
To share His light and awesome love
Forever: all our days.

So, whilst down upon your knee
And asking for my heart,
Remember this as I say yes -
Until death do us part.
