 From the Heart Through the Pen

The Journey Called Love

In the journey called love
You search for the one
Worthy to take the trip
We're not talking about a three
Or six hour ride
We're talking about
The one that lasts more than a lifetime
The one that goes on
Through all eternity
Even past the end of all time

The one who's ready
To bear it all with you
Traveling through all sorts of storms
Sand, rain, snow, sleet, and hail
The one who's ready to
Walk by your side
Or get out and help you push
In case any part of your engine fails

We're all searching for the one
Who's ready to make memories
Who is a part of the happiest moments
Of your life
The reason your heart
Is so full of smiles
The one with whom
Sharing your life with
Makes each and every moment
So very beautiful
But also the one who doesn't back out
When your relationship
Suffers through trials

Still by your side
With you mile for mile
They're ready to say sorry
And ready to forgive
When either of you
Has made a mistake
By your love combination
You will make it through

In each other you believe
In each other you know
You need each other
And with vows you want
To prove this true
In front of family, friends, and others
As God as your witness
You both say I do

Now that you share a covenant
Not as two, but as one
You add more to your new family
Whether it be a daughter or a son
Or possibly both
Your love for each other deepens
And expands its growth

As you watch your kids
Move on through life
And they find themselves
Either their own husband or wife
It's back to you two
Who share
The heart, mind, body, and soul of one
This journey no where near done

So many moments experienced
So many more to share
You still go through those
That are happy, sad, hot and cold
Problems for the most part
Easy to solve
Cause by now you know each other so well
Before you know it you're 89 years old

Now you're looking
For that lifetime warranty
Still have those hands to hold
The smile and love that won't ever fade
Still you have those days
That the other has made
They're still the one you
Just can not get enough of
Soon it's time to go to the other side
And they're either waiting patiently
For their groom or their bride
So far a magnificent journey
But there's still more to come
Because forever goes
The Journey Called Love
