We Think We Know The Ones We Love

Carry On Tuesday #13

The prompt this week is the opening sentence from
The Story of a Marriage by Andrew Sean Greer

We think we know
the ones we love.

Use all or part of it at the start or somewhere
within your poem or prose.
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here's my self-made Poem

We think we know
the ones we love
Like the simple gestures
of sweet nothings
The simple warm look
of caring and loving
The simple acceptance
of partner’s imperfections
Like knowing when
to give your understanding
To the one you love.

I think I really know my love
Come what may I’ll still love him.

I think it's not what you think or what you know about your loved ones, we should really accept them as they are even if we discovered that they're not the perfect human that we think they are, it's part of the thing called 'love', Love is acceptance and understanding. Remember God love us even if we're not perfect!

A deep felt poem. I've been married for 32 years and i think essential to this is knowing that neither can ever be perfect, and a relationship is about compromise and sticking together through any adversity that arises.

We none of us are perfct so how can we ask of an other what we cannot deliver ourselves?

God is perfect love; He is LOVE and shows perfect love.

We are less than perfect, but we have the ability to accept that. Often we can't overlook flaws but when we can, it is wonderful.

Beautiful, heartfelt poem. Loved it!
