facets of an emerald

Love has many facets
Stroke just shows another face
Spending time together
Finding both your space.

Love has twists and turns
Stroke response is slow
Patience is the answer
If you want life to flow.

Love has no easy answers
Stroke wrestles every move
Knowledge brings understanding
Time and effort will improve.

Love comes with sacrifice
Stroke has played new cards
Readying for reshuffle
Will keep us both from shards.

Love has no measure
Stroke challenges tomorrow
“One day at a time.”
Good motto now to follow.

Love demands team play
Stroke, a challenging opponent.

Happy Valentine’s Day My Love
