by Floriana Hall.
Tender are the moments
We share together
Not always on the same page
We are not always the same age
But close in our hearts.
We like each other
Husband or wife,
Mother, father, sister or brother,
Friends or extended family
And that is the key
To continuous harmony.
No relationship is perfect
But is better with respect,
And hearing opinions open-minded
Trying not to outshine or undermine
The rapport which we seek.
We do not have to pretend
That we are just fair weather friends
No matter what, we will stick together
Like glue on an unopened package –
We are the package that is open,
Above board and all together
And we never regret time spent
In relationships where we are content.
