All men are such idiots.
They have always thought that to make their wives happy, they just need to splurge lavish gifts on their wives.
Is it really true?
I strongly disagree that marriage build on such foundation can last.
Most of the times, there is no need to give expensive gift to my wife (even though there are some special times we need to spend more).
I reallise that the most beautiful gifts are always the simple gift which I can do it yourself.
It can be done by you, siad by you, written by you.
What is the key?
It has to be from you and that is all it needs to make the gift special.
One of them is definitely writing relationship poems.
I am no writing person and I can’t compose poems.
In fact, I hate Literature during my secondary school days and I hate those times writing poems.
Now, somehow I feel guilty I should have mastered the art of poem composition well so that I can write lovely relationship poems for my wife.
But this is what I can do…
I went to the Internet to look for nice poems for my own research (secret! :p )and here are a few.

1. Thank You For Your Friendship and Love
by Nicholas Gordon
Thank you for your friendship and your love.
However life may turn, this gift will be
A mountain that has made my river bend,
Nor will it flow the same way to the sea.
Knowing you is something I’m made of.
Years will not this part of me remove.
One lives for just a brief eternity,
Understanding truths that never end.

2. The Bond Of Marriage
by George J. Carroll
What keeps couples together
And makes marriage a Holy Bond?
Is it that one gives more and takes less,
That keeps love so very sound.
Or is it that two become one
And give love from the heart?
Each day that love is renewed
Knowing it will never part.
When in each others arms at night
The words I love you can be heard
Above the passion they feel
In each and every loving word.
And when the storms of life appear
That seem to shake the very core.
It’s then one has to be strong
And forgive the one they adore.
Mutual respect for the other
Is a must for marriage to endure.
Faithfulness to each other
Keeps the bond of marriage secure.

3. I Promise
By Dorothy R. Colgan
I promise to give you the best of myself
and to ask of you no more than you can give.
I promise to respect you as your own person
and to realize that your interests, desires and needs
are no less important than my own. I promise to share with you my time and my attention
and to bring joy, strength and imagination to our relationship.
I promise to keep myself open to you
, to let you see through the window of my world
into my innermost fears and feelings, secrets and dreams. I promise to grow along with you,
to be willing to face changes in order to keep
our relationship alive and exciting.
I promise to love you in good times and bad,
with all I have to give and all I feel inside
in the only way I know how,
completely and forever

4. Never Marry But For Love
From William Penn
Never marry but for love;
but see that thou lovest what is lovely.
He that minds a body and not a soul
has not the better part of that relationship,
and will consequently lack
the noblest comfort of a married life.
Between a man and his wife nothing ought rule but love.
As love ought to bring them together, so it is the best way
to keep them well together.
A husband and wife that love one another
show their children that they should do so too.
Others visibly lose their authority in their families by
their contempt of one another, and teach their children to be
unnatural by their own examples.
Let not enjoyment lessen, but augment, affection;
it being the basest of passions to like
when we have not, what we slight when we possess.
Here it is we ought to search out our pleasure,
where the field is large and full of variety,
and of an enduring nature; sickness,
poverty or disgrace being not able to
shake it because it is not under
the moving influences of worldly contingencies.
Nothing can be more entire and without reserve;
nothing more zealous, affectionate and sincere;
nothing more contented than such a couple,
nor greater temporal felicity
than to be one of them.

5. On Marriage
By Dr John Celes
Pessimistic views: :
Marriage is a gamble!
Marriage is a punishment;
Marriage is an evil that
Most can?t but accept.
Marriage is a gift of God;
Marriage is a blessing;
Marriage is an enjoyment,
We make the best of it.
Marriage is so wonderful;
Marriage is so fulfilling;
Marriage is so wholesome;
Marriage is an endless love,
More priceless than all wealth!
Marriage is a way of life;
Marriage is so natural;
Marriage is the better way,
For two, to reach Heaven.
