What does love mean to you?

Love is a bond that doesn't break,
No matter the stress,
Or whatever the stakes.

It's a bond of trust and love,
Where care is easily found,
And on that day where hearts meet,
Together you are bound.

Days, months, years later,
On that altar fine,
Those few words that you will never forget are said,
"You may kiss the bride."

A life of love,
And a love of life,
Together you'll stand,
And together you'll get through all of life's strife.

No matter what happens,
No matter what life does,
You'll be together,
Just like two doves.

 
THANK YOU :iconmilestailsfox-fan:! If I hadn't seen his Challenges and prizes journal, I don't think I would have broken out of my poet's block. Yes, that topic was about brotherhood, not true love, but I didn't get the idea until after I started thinking about brotherhood, and the love that comes from it, which gave me the burst of inspiration I needed to finish a poem for my aunt and uncle's anniversary.

:iconpoeticalcondition: critique:

I'll have to be really upfront with you on this matter - it didn't appeal to me. I think that the perspective you have shown in this poem is too ideal towards what is love. At the same time, it portrays one aspect of love - it isn't as simple as is portrayed in this poem.

I only have an issue with the content as a stand-alone poem. I'm not saying that my opinion makes it bad: Personally, I'd be happy if I was your uncle, after reading this poem. Anyone would be if they have had a well grounded marriage. In that respect, it does deliver on what it feels - but as a poem in general, I think that the title you've used is misleading. I'd recommend trying to change it in some way.

You can discard this comment, or even hide it if you want. Its all up to you.

I loved that. It made me think of my fiance and made me miss him. I sent it to him to read and he loved it too!

You're welcome. And I can't thank you enough for helping me simultaneously break out of my block and finish my aunt and uncle's anniversary present.
