Author: Barbara Goodhew


I loved you way back when
considerate and respectful you were then.

Then we got married
and things went hairy.

Consideration and respect were gone.

To keep love alive.
Don't let respect and courtesy

------- Author's Notes -------

this is about my marriage and why we divorced we don't live together and know the nicetys are back. We are good friends now

I can relate

Why is it, that once the ring in on the finger, it's so easy take the other person for granted and forget the basics? If you woulnd't treat a stranger unkindly, why be that way to the one you claim to love the most? Good point made here, Barb. Thanks for sharing.
