That summer day when we finally said I do,
I was young
I was naive; clueless.
I didn’t understand love; its truth.
I didn’t understand love and the knots that bind it; how far it stretches,
I did not understand patience,
Compassion and kindness,
not being proud,
Not to be irritable nor resentful
I did not understand true love.
But since that day, when we said I do,
I continue to mature
I have matured so far,
I continue to understand love
Love for what the Bible says it is;
Love in our marriage,
The love that is kind
I truly DO!!
