Difficult Times Marriage
All marriages/partnerships suffer ups and downs, but sometimes the downs stay down a litle to long and effort from both parties maybe required to pull things back into shape. Communicate your needs in verse to your partner to remind them of how things used to be and politely request some middle ground.
We all know it’s the little things
That begins to drive the wedge
And it’s usually another little thing
That’ll send it over the edge.
All marriages suffer ups and down
Little troughs and peaks
But usually the troughs
Last only a couple of weeks
This time it’s a little different
I’m sure you’ve noticed too
We need to work through this
I don’t want to just make do
So let’s make time for each other
To talk and find each other
We’ve had some tough times lately
With everything going on
Just lately it feels that as something goes right
It’s mirrored by something going wrong
It’s had its effect on our relationship
Things haven’t felt quite right
There’s this weird distance between us
When we lay down at night.
We both need to be aware of this
And stop this going stale
We must find some time for each other
Our marriage mustn’t fail.
We’ve both been a little distant
Both been a bit amiss
We’ve had some peaks and troughs before
But nothing quite as low as this
I need you to know I love you
And I need us to come through
So let’s start working together again
The way we used to do.
Things aren’t right
It needs to change
We need to re-arrange
We must find sometime
To set things straight
Get back on track
Before it’s too late
We all take things for granted
It’s a natural thing to do
When things are constantly done
To make life easier for you
It’s amazing how the little things
Can upset the way of life
Especially the life between
A Husband and his Wife
I need some appreciation
Not a lip service, to placate.
A little thank you here and there
That’s genuine, would be great.
In return, I’ll be more appreciative
and that’s a guarantee.
I start by saying, I Love You and Thank You
For all the things you do for me.
I know I love you dearly
But that’s not enough you see
I need to know I can trust you
And that you’ll no longer cheat on me.
I so want to forgive and move on
As I know we’ve not been right
We need to work together and
collectively put up a fight.
I promise I’ll do my up most
To put this all behind
But every now and then -
you know this thing will spring to mind.
If we both put equal effort in
And continue hand in hand
Then I’m sure the demons will eventually rest
And our marriage will once again stand.
I so much want to do this
and not throw it all away.
You’re telling me that you want it too
So let’s start without delay.
We’ve had a tough time lately
but we’ve come out of it positive.
Positive to try again
to learn, love and forgive.
I stumbled upon this quote
That I feel really does apply
“Every accomplishment starts
with the decision to try.”
I am so glad that’s where we’re at
and not throwing it all away.
Let’s banish all the storm clouds
and pray for sunshine again someday.
I know we’ve been though it lately-
We both have pain and sorrow.
But, “What is not started today
is never finished tomorrow.”
So let’s get stuck in and give it our all
and give it our best endeavour.
Soon I hope we’ll see sunny skies
and be rid of the stormy weather.
