The life-partner gets the name, the children;
She seems so full of all the bounties of life;
Yet, what happens if there is no love in the union?
How much of a marriage does it stay?
Sometime, somewhere, the soul-mate comes
Quietly, with an eternity's love for him.
Her eyes are full of light.
Who should win: the one who has so much to show,
Or the one who has surrendered her all
Asking for nothing in return?
(A poem on a man's experience of a fake, hollow marriage and his encounter with his one true love. In no way does the poem advocate marital infidelity)
