Space for Love

Space for Love

Couples undergoing stressful moments,

Need to avoid unnecessary comments,

 Strive steadily to bring calm,

To act as a balm,

Make space for each other,

For getting closer,

Appeasing their frustration and anger,

Creating the ambience to forgive themselves fully,

Just as a plant needs care to grow beautifully.

For love to bloom again

For couples to bond all over again,

Instead of wilting in pain,

Why not make it all a mutual gain,

With private talk, understanding, patience,

A dose of tolerance and perseverance?

Love will certainly bloom in abundance.

With space for intimacy,

Thus gaining supremacy.
