Marriage is a bow,
tied together in a tight knot.
Glued in resilient arrangement,
in exquisite symmetry.
Reflecting the light,
gleaming with pride.
Mighty and blissful,
firm and strong,
the bow shall stand.

But, bows become withered,
and many times loose.
The fixed knots come apart,
lies flimsy,
feeble on the ground.
Now, just a piece of ribbon,
dark and forlorn,
fragile and helpless,
the bow shall fall.
