A Love-Song For Couples by Kego Onyido

May you each dig deep and find self-love so that you can truly love the other personFor it is only in first loving yourself that you can you truly love anotherYou can only share who you are. You can only give what you haveWhen your souls thirst or hunger for the beauty of lifeMay you be quenched with the waters of unconditional loveMay you be courageous to have boundaries and uproot the weeds in your garden of loveMay you each be a perfect witness of the awesomeness of your lives to the glory of the creatorMay you complement each other, yet find your completion from the source of all creationMay you transit beautifully from the giddiness and passion of ‘blind’ romantic loveTo a deeper, filling, abiding love that allows you to see and accept each other exactly as you areStripped, vulnerable and bare, and still love each other even more deeply, passionately and trulyMay you take each other down from fanciful pedestals and choose to stay rooted in the gift of realityMay you always remember that marriage is freestyle and that your style will evolve over the yearsYet the foundation will remain the same: transcendent mutual love, honour, respect and trust…And know that in putting the other person first above all, you uplift yourself tooMay you find sweet solace from the stress of the rat race in each other’s warm embraceMay you always answer each other’s phone calls with a smile and prayer in your voiceMay you never lose your sense of humour, sense of self, passion and adventureMay you always remember sweet tender moments and learn from hurtful experiencesAnd still choose to leave any painful hurts in the past where they truly belongWithout perpetuating the myth of already healed wounds in a bid to play victimMay you consciously take time and resources to create memoriesThat will continually fuel your relationship in periods of droughtsMay you take time off from life and dance bare-feet to your own musicA unique composition, blended from rhythms of your hearts and souls.May you grow towards the light of God, in different forms and at different pacesYet ultimately together, intimately and intricately joined, in the same directionMay you always find each other in this crowded maze of lifeMay God bless and keep the fires of your love alive foreverAs you continue to bask in the mystery and wonder of your loveAnd create, heal, build, share, connect, serve and celebrate each other!© ‘Kego OnyidoRead more poetry from Kego on her blog   Read more >
