Make a change. Listen to what he's asking. There's a reason why he's mad. Sometimes he needs to vent but doesn't know how. Just understand him, and as hard as it is, let him just be mad. Do...

Life Moves Way Too Fast


Published by Family Friend Poems August 2006 with permission of the Author.

You're the reason I get up to face each hectic day.
How did our lives get so consumed with nonsense along the way?

We used to take the time to laugh and play a game or two,
But now it seems we fight a lot and cry way too much, too.

So when you go to sleep at night, I'll slip in by your side.
I'll hold you close and squeeze you tight and feel amazing pride.

You're the one that I love best; it's very clear to see.
With every day I know I'm blessed that you're a part of me.

Now let's just try to slow it down and savor all that's passed.
For that's what molds our future, and life moves way too fast.

My fiancé and I have been in love, and we've enjoyed every part of it until recently. We started having issues over simple matters. As I read through this poem, I felt like it was meant for us. It practically says everything about our love, and it also provides answers to the problems that have plagued our love life and robbed us of our joy. Thank you so much!

Anger is like a slow poison to love. So while what is bothering him seems to be trivial and not to matter, it might matter to him. The issue might not be important, but the fact that it is important to him is what counts. It's not just about listening to him and letting him vent. A lot of guys are logical creatures and it drives their emotions. So if you want to resolve it you need to find out why it's important to him and see if he wants help resolving it. Do not force to help him. He may just want someone to listen and understand what he's trying to say and feel like you understand. But let's not forget your feelings and things that are important to you or also important in a relationship. Best piece of advice I can offer is look up the movie Fireproof and watch it. Some of the things they do in that movie show exactly what to do. And it's not a quick fix, but it works.

Today is gone and all I wish for is you, my heart has never change. I still feel your present around me, my life is empty and your space awaits you no matter how long it takes my love. Whenever you tell me that you love me I pray to God for another year so I can be with you and share that love, I'm waiting on you my love. And I pray that God guide your steps as you get closer to me.

This poem reminds me so much of me and my husband. We've been married for 4 years now and we got two wonderful kids 3 and 1 year old. When we first got together he was so sweet and did everything to make me happy and now he just works, comes home and goes to sleep. I try everything to make him happy but nothing seems to work. I do love him so much and he tells me the same but he gets mad over the smallest of things that shouldn't even matter.

Make a change. Listen to what he's asking. There's a reason why he's mad. Sometimes he needs to vent but doesn't know how. Just understand him, and as hard as it is, let him just be mad. Do not add fuel to the fire. He's already mad for something else that like you said doesn't matter. Try to do something productive and he'll soon see you're not paying attention and he WILL change. Divorce is not an option!

I just lost someone close to me because of stuff that does not matter, and I can relate to what you're saying without being in your shoes. Please do not make our mistake. The kids pay the price.
