marriage distresses lead to regrouping and new growth
We each were culpable in our marriage mess,
Yet, blindsided, I heard him disclose and confess,
He'd found someone else, was planning to leave,
My every action then pled for reprieve.
I sought aid from wise counsel, 'ere we'd perish,
For we'd sadly forgotten, each other to cherish.
Our partnership lacked the foundation of trust,
And openness, too, we both learned is a must.
Walls were torn down, as we learned to forgive,
The honesty and granting our marriage to live.
We lived to repent, after heart-wrenching grief,
And, slowly, in healing, we found our relief.
Now several years later, we both will not dare,
To neglect each other in fervent prayer.
Into each others eyes, full face to face,
We gaze and rejoice ... in God's endless Grace.
