I was quite fascinated when i read this poem -The Prophet by Khalil Gibran “ On Marriage. It reads like this.
“But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
Love one another, but make not a bond of love.
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls……
Even as the strings of a lute are alone
Though they quiver with the same music. ….
And stand together, yet not too near together.
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress
Grow not in each other’s shadow.”
