I'm having a broadside of this poem done for my 15th wedding anniversary.
I realize WCW probably wrote this after being married longer than this but
the poem really speaks to the work it takes to not only survive the rough
spots but to use them to strengthen your relationship. To still be close
to someone after many years takes effort and wisdom, and imagination, we
didn't have when we were young.

You stay in love by choice, through effort and will, not chance.

I read this poem in college in 1985. At the time I was in love with a man
who was married and from a very different culture. So we wanted to be
together but couldn't. This poem speaks to me about love that is there but
can not be acted upon.
