To Be One With Each Other
What greater thing is there for two human souls
than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen
each other in all labor, to minister to each other in all sorrow,
to share with each other in all gladness,
to be one with each other in the
silent unspoken memories?
This poem is appropriate when apologizing to your girlfriend, boyfriend,
lover, or spouse. It focuses on that special union between two people and
the risks to the relationship if the situation isn't resolved.
The following poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning is a well known
standard that has helped to mend many relationship fences. It has been
around for many years because it's so perfect for so many 'apology' related
How Do I Love Thee??
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,--I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life!--and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
I'm sorry poems between friends should convey how important the friendship is to you.
friendship is a gift
Oh so precious and so rare
Sometimes we take it for granted
Sometimes we do despair
Our fault is being human
Mistakes are everywhere
Please let me not lose the gift
That is so precious and so rare.

mother, father, son, daughter, brother, sister, or even a spouse.
There's one sad truth in life I've found
While journeying east and west -
The only folks we really wound
Are those we love the best.
We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those who love us best.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
