Pathways Of Life

Pathways Of Life

We walked together the pathways of life,
Hand in hand facing each obstacle we came upon.
Welcoming those that strengthened our resolve,
Conquering that which refused to yield.

Inseparable from one another, together our love grew,
Stronger and stronger with each passing day.
We grew closer as each challenge was met,
Becoming as one in deed and thought.

Time passes for those with the illusion,
That always their love will be strong.
As our lives become complacent, assumptions are made,
Love slips away slowly and becomes stagnant.

A cross word said, a thoughtless remark made,
Ignoring the needs of each other.
Taking for granted the other will forgive,
Selfishness and greed become our passion.

Ignorantly we hurt without thought or need,
Blindly stumbling, wounding each others soul.
Negligent we are that we refuse to see,
The pain growing and the tears from the eyes.

Our pathways of life have come to a fork,
Once clasped hands no longer do touch.
Our resolve no longer strong, a decision to be made,
To conquer with Love, or yield to Hate.

It is true that every relationship comes to a cross roads. This is a beautiful match of a picture to go with the poem. Nice one.

My husband and I took the path that conquered with love rather than the other when we came to the fork. It's been 35 years and we are still walking.

Such a nice illustration for the nice poem.
