Love is responsibility
Responsibility to each other
A commitment of life time.
It is in holding it and fulfilling it
That gives it the sheen.
In every high tide and low
In the crests and troughs
Through turbulent waters of the rapids
And the peace of the tranquil river
It is in merging oneself with the other
Taking on a new identity together.
A love that is so tender
That it hides the strength of the world
A love that lights up the darkest night
Even with the faintest flickering light.
When actions taken in this love
Seem illogical and irrational
It is because they are taken
With responsibility, not without.
