Never Let Me Go

Fastidiously reviewing

Every clenching word

Out of your beloved mouth;

Searching for an enduring spark;

Hope that this love

Will live beyond

These troubled times.


Such a daunting task

Before us,

Fixing the bugs,

Holding tight

Even when fear of an end

Makes us flinch.


Pleading for passionate contentment

To intensify

While doubt recedes.

Choosing to trust that you’ll

Keep me close

‘Til the shaking passes,

And take on faith

The vow that only death will part,

And in between

You’ll never let me go.


  1. What a strong avowal of love and constancy. I was hoping the last line would be "We'll never let each other go".

  2. This was a beautiful poem and made me think about a couple going through troubles and trying their best to stay together and work things out but also at the same time fearing that things will not but never truly giving up hope. Usually most things become better with lots of time, faith and love. Also I think that a selective memory loss helps to improve a lot of things too. Then again a small part of me thinks they should take that part of until we die out of the marriage vows because it seems as if no one takes that part seriously anymore which is a sad thing and your poem shows that marriage is something that can need work and couples should never give up.

    Thank you for playing and sharing this wonderful poem with us for this weeks Theme Thursday. I hope you have a fun weekend surrounded by a loving family and great friends.

    God bless.
