“Whenever you’re in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude.”

– William James

** As Soft as the flower's petals;

As fragile as the beautiful glass;

As feeble as the candle's flame;

As delicate as the butterfly's wings;

As gentle as the weaver's thread;

But if broken~~~~~~~```

These might even get repaired;

But nothing can repair the,

** ~~~~~RELATIONSHIPS~~~~--,**

And If they are broken~~~~~~~;

All your efforts to mend them;

Can not hide the ugly tangles;

That can be easily visible!

Cherish the beautiful~

**~~~~RELATIONSHIPS~~~~;**

Preserve and protect them;

As you would protect your treasure;

They are like flowers in a bouquet;

And must be handled With Care!!**

“People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges.”

— Joseph F. Newton Men

      And also, it is good to understand that once a person falls out of love with you, they are over you. This fact can be heartbreaking for the one who took someone's love for granted assuming that persons heart would never change. Unconditional love is valuable any person who has it has found their treasure on earth.

      Very nice poem. I like how you brought out how delicate a relationship is by flowers and butterflies and things such as these. If everyone could picture their relationship as this, and work on it together, maybe more relationships would last. Very pretty!!

      Thank you MsDora, for your kind words of appreciation! And thanks for noticing the comparisons in the poem as well.

      Most of us go through troubled relationships in our lives even with the closest of family and friends. Of course the responsibility lies with both sides to maintain cordial relations. At least we can do the best from our side to avoid strained relationships.

      Thank you for reading and commenting!

      Thank you Missy Smith, for appreciating the poem! Glad you noticed the comparisons.

      We all go through turbulent times with regard to some close relationships. And unfortunately if it is broken, it hurts and it hurts so much that it seems that everything is finished. We should all at least try to avoid such situations to arise. We should do everything we can to protect and preserve our relations with family and friends.

      Thank you so much for your valuable comments!

      You are absolutely right that some relationships that unfortunately are broken cannot be mended. In fact it is the responsibility of both sides to maintain it.

      We are responsible for our own behaviour and we have no control on how others behave. It is wise to move on if things do not improve/ mend in spite of our best efforts.

      Thank you and have a nice day!

      You are absolutely true and I agree with your views. One must take care even with the closest of relationships. But unfortunately people learn this the harder way when it is already too late to mend.

      Thank you Deb, for your valuable comments--always appreciated!
