There is no giving up

I wish I were born in simpler times
When marriage was forever
A time when people fixed what was broken
Instead of throwing it away
We live in a world
Of instant gratification
Following desires and wants
Losing loyalty and faith

We live in a world
Where it takes multiple people
To satisfy our needs
And your marriage
is the last thing you focus on
Work, kids, freedom
Bills, friends,
All more important

I am a hopeless romantic
I believe in love at first sight
Love triumphing against all odds
And soul mates
But isnt the most romantic scenario
A marriage, that is beyond breaking
Can stand the test of time
And still hold strong

Standing at the V
Of the path in front of you
You can no longer stand still
The time has arrived
To commit
And move forward
To choose what you
Are going to dedicate your life to

No matter how much love
You may feel
No matter how good your life might have been
It is too late
For your path was already chosen
When you said I do
There are no do overs
No second chances

There are commitments
And promises
History and bonds
There is blood sweat and tears
There is no giving up
No matter how much damage is done
And the one who loves you the most
Is still standing there, waiting for you
