It was just a foolish argument as
I sit here and contemplate while
my rose of surrender fades and
wilts not to compliment a landscape
glowing with the radiance of you

My body aches to embrace our
differences with understanding
addressing the wind to whisper
I Love You with a scattering of
undue clouds in sorrow not to
rain on our bench made for two

Vigilance in my pursuit but I must
not let the sun go down without
amends since our silly argument
matters not for truth in happiness

(c) Avow of Contention

Truth in line with how all of us grasp the importance of each other through honest communication.

we sleep the good sleep if we
reconcile before day dies;
sage advice, Vivian, and a generous,
forgiving nature

Peace does make a home a home! I so enjoyed the voice in this ~

Yes we should make up before bedtime, just like Momma told us. It leaves tomorrow free for another of those trivial spats. I've found that it is hard to sit on one of those Jack and Jill benches and keep a good argument going. This is a pretty little poem about a serious matter.

I love the way you wrapped the importance of life "matters not for truth in happiness" that bench needs one more! :)

A bench made for a silly argument solved perhaps

Aye. Never let the sun go down without solving your problems. Actually I heard it a different way. Never go to bed without solving your problem. Same difference . . .
