The Test of Time

You have to enjoy being together if you want it to last
This post has been awarded 75 stars by 17 readers.

At first there was passion, hot as a flame
Alas more is needed for your love to remain
For flames will cool down as embers still glow
But if your mate is your friend your love will still grow
It takes laughter and fun to make a life that's worthwhile
For real love to last it needs a kiss and a smile
I can attest to all this for I speak from my heart
Our love is as strong as it was from the start

Thanks Douglas, I guess it is right that it's better if it comes from the heart.

I'm too young to know such love as this, but I can still see it. This poem was heartwarming :)
