Strong Relationships Require Strength

March 7, 2017

Dear Subscriber:

Each week we examine a theme from a variety of points of view. The theme for this week is anniversaries.

Today’s poem is a 7th anniversary poem about love and will.

I welcome comments on my poems at


Nick Gordon

Strong relationships require strength.
Each must be the one who makes things work.
Vested in a love, one ought to love,
Embracing what one else would be enduring.
No love survives a marriage but by will.

Years of love accumulate, at length
Evolving into fate. The frantic search
Abates, one finds one’s yes, and it will prove
Resilient. One is settled in one’s mooring,
Singing, yearning, dreaming, dancing still.
