    Passion pales in comparison to devotion
    and attentiveness and nurturing.
    Passion pales in comparison to long suffering
    tried and true , love ya til ya black and blue.
    Passion pales in comparison to the stick with
    ya through thick and thin, and I knew you back
    when...you didn't have "a pot to piss in or a
    window to throw it out!"
    Do you know what I am talking about?

    Passion pales to the nights we walked the
    floor together ,praying for our son that he
    would soon get better.
    Passion pales from the fire of infatuation
    in lust, til we built up that "Solid as a Rock"
    trust. Fires may consume things but nothing
    consumes our love.
    Passion pales, but love never fails!

    Passion pales to the days and nights we
    labored for the American dream, to the
    summer's in the Carribbean's when we
    truly learned what enjoying "The Fruits
    of Your Labors" means. Passion pales cause we
    don't feel the need to keep up with our
    neighbors...we just adjust and savor
    the flavor.

    Passion pales to the security in knowing
    one's self and sharing you with someone
    else in it's purest form...Passion fails!
    But "True Love" prevails.

    So very true.

    Beautiful piece.

    This one really tugged at my heartstrings & tied 'em in a bow.

    Another "Peace Piece" as I like to call 'em.
