The Eternal Joy

The Eternal Joy

A Poem by Nyida Strong

Two of my friends were married last month, this is my gift to them.


He is a nylon rope,

sturdy and mighty,

spiritual in his ways.

She is a silken cord,

delicate yet strong,

kindness is her path.

They balance the

life of the other

with a promise

to cherish, to love,

from this day

until their last.

Entwined among their

hearts is the

third cord,

the most important

piece of themselves

is their God.

Together they can

go far and wide,

but not Forever.

Only with the

iron cable of


braided into their

new union and beyond

may they have

eternal joy.

He smiles at her,

a husband with his wife.

Their hearts united

in their love for

each other and

their Heavenly Father.
