Marvelous, marital marathons,
Bearing burdens, with blistering brawn,
Fervent fidelity, dusk to dawn,
Clutching with care, this blessed baton.
“Love until death” is their antiphon,
Patient prayer allows them to push on,
Spiritual battles, worse than Bataan,
Worn at the finish line…woebegone,
Forgiving and giving…”denouement”!
