The Art of Heart-to-heart

 Sometimes our differences can keep life interesting...
At other times it is a serious business of learning humility!

This two way street of you and I
Learning how to meet eye to eye
While you prefer the things you do
And I don’t share your point of view
Can keep us relearning the art
Of hand-in-hand and heart-to-heart
But we dare not give up, for then
We choose the lesser way of men
But daily, by God’s grace commit
To make the very best of it
Lest we become bitter and sad
Numbed by the things we wish we had
Or merely learn to co-exist
Never full-loved,

...and wives, may our love adapt these eyes
