How long has it been since you prayed for your man,
To change those things that only God can?
How long has it been since you went on a date,
Instead of arguing and fretting with your mate?
How long has it been since you shared a meal,
Talking, teasing, and flirting with zeal?
How long has it been since you two held hands,
Or walked on boardwalk or beach’s sands?
How long has it been you said, “I love you—“
Was it the day you spoke the words “I do?”
If the time is so long you can’t remember,
Today is the day you need to surrender;
To take that first step to bridge the gap;
Hold fast to today; tomorrow may not come;
Seize the moment; don’t waste it as some.
Relationships are hard—take time and work;
Don’t put it off; please don’t shirk.
Take time to try to understand your mate;
See his point of view; tomorrow could be too late.
