"In a world where forgery so often stands alongside the genuine article, it is sometimes hard to distinguish between the two. However much others may seek to deceive and fool us though, true love never will deceive, for it cannot be concealed in the confetti of a sham marriage or conterfeited in the coin of deceit.
Your children will sense when it is within their parents' relationship and also when it isn't. Its presence or absence in their innocent eyes will mould the characters they will one day become and how respectful and sensitive you are in your marital relationship will determine the essense and quality of bond which they establish with their partners in life. I include below my poem,
'Love is.....' by William Forde: Text Copyright June 2014.
Love is good, kind, gentle and sincere.
It is given freely and is given best when it is given without expectation of return.
It cares, but never minds and is capable of enduring all trial and tribulation of the heart and soul.
Love is a treasure to behold.
It endures long after it has been passed on to another and in its growth anew, it will always pass the test of time.
If love be anything, love is bold; for if bold it be not, then love it isn't.
Love is to truth, what sun is to moon and earth is to sky and you are to me. Love is my soul mate and forever shall be
my shadow of protective purpose, my eternal destiny.
I love you most dearly and I always will.
Sleep ever so tight my love and stay still in my arms.
Stay wrapped warm around me throughout this next night
and if I wake up beside you to start a new day,
I'll know heaven once more.'"
