Train our love

January 30th, 2011

Train our love
that it may grow
till our hearts will overflow
unrestrained and readily.

Discipline it, too,
dear God;
strength of steel
throughout the whole.
Teach us patience,
tenderness, and

Deepen it
throughout the years,
age and mellow it
until, time that finds us
old without,
will find us
lovers still.

-Ruth Belle Graham, Never Let it End: Poems of a Lifelong Love
