You’re Telling Us Let­ters

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Contents -

Ev­ery mar­riage is dif­fer­ent No love is the same Some take it se­ri­ously To oth­ers a game.

Some prom­ise to obey Be a du­ti­ful wife Whether happy or not A mar­riage for life.

Some come in as equals Dis­cuss ev­ery plan Not one per­son in charge Nei­ther woman nor man.

Some start with a friend­ship And bloom into love Some start with a bang And end with a shove.

None of th­ese things Has the power to sway What yours means to you In its own unique way.

When two ca­pa­ble adults Our sis­ters, our brothers Find the one true per­son Who stands out from the oth­ers.

The one who de­fines what they want for their life A lover, a part­ner, a hus­band, a wife.

It shouldn’t mat­ter at all Whether one sex or two When the feel­ings are real And the com­mit­ment is true.

My mar­riage is spe­cial My com­mit­ment is strong To deny this to oth­ers Feels ter­ri­bly wrong.

Melissa, Din­g­ley Vil­lage, Vic
