when two people fall in love

they always know what to do to please one another.

but as they grow forward together,

they grow accustomed to each other

and forget the little things like "i love you"

in more than the verbal, habitual sense.

they no longer see.

when i feel myself growing accustomed

to having you around,

taking you for granted,

forgetting passionate beginnings,

looking at you without seeing

i stop and realize you could NOT be here,

you could slip away.

then i do all the things necessary

to keep our love alive

and protect your heart that sees me so clearly.

Very Good Write!...One that all couples should read daily and POST IT with a "refrigerator magnet" so that they ARE REMINDED DAILY!!!
Thank you for such an insight into one of the most common pitfalls of marriage--taking each other for granted.

All the best;
