Love this poem! So real!
So real! ! This is what happened between husband and wife. But the love wins. Such a lovely poem and i would like to read it again and again.Loved it.

What a great poem, I like it very much. I like how you illustrate love.
I like the way love is illustrated in this poem, the persona arguments why she think there is true love between her and her partner. Nice work.
Indeed true love is beyond all drawbacks of life and is there to compensate them all for life between two souls!
Very well said. Nice poem.
We still feel something! Thanks for sharing.
Wonderful poem on true love. It is the honesty with which we recognize our shortcomings as well as those of our partner and then do everything to have an harmonious relationship in life without regrets. Thanks.
Sheer honesty and who can't understand this is indeed true love
