Stages of Love

I wanted it to last forever...

In any long term relationship there have always been different stages. At first, you're infatuated and see them as perfect. Then slowly things unravel and they end up not looking as perfect anymore. There ends up a power struggle to get them back to how you saw them at the beginning. Then when you finally realize you can't change them you learn to accept them and their flaws and imperfections. That can lead your relationship to an even higher evolved state.


Stages of Love

I loved you once

I loved you twice

I loved you three times

For all eternity

Every time very different

It never stayed the same

The first time was the best

Because it was so pure

And I had a dream of you

A Prince Charming for sure

The second we learned

That forgiveness is the cure

And had to forget all the fights

Taking a detour

The third time was a charm

Because we knew what to expect

Back from the start again

With a newfound respect

We never stopped trying

Round and round we went

We grew as different people

But became one again.


Like a moth to a flame, burned by the fire...
