In praise of Happy Marriage: A Sonnet

Learn to stand quiet and full of deep attention

If thou forget then hit thy face with a sharp smack;

Which would aid thy to remember goodness of wife with correction,

If thou lose mind again, then don't ever dare to bang the dishes with a huge crack.

Stay obedient and true to heart, do not creep around

Thou can make thy lady happier with a credit card of endless limit;

Beware thy silence on her spending is a golden key to keep her heart surround,

Thy mistress would make thy world a Paradise of Roses in a minute.

Thou lips art pink like Roses my lady, thy smile seems like splashing water

Thy eyes are deep like an ocean, thy voice is sweet than a melody sound;

I never saw a goddess as hot as thou art my mistress, now nothing much matter,

Thou art my happiness of heart, I yearn to die in thy arms while sensing ground.

Thou art not easy to possess Oh Blissful Happy Marriage

Desperate art those who don't taste thou; And those too who swing in thy Carriage.

A Vow to love during all seasons

Excellent work, thoroughly enjoyable poem!

Expressing important life messages, in a fun manner is an art, and you did it beautifully.

You are right—a happy Marriage needs lot of understanding, commitment, adjustments, the ability to forget and forgive, trust, and what not. Love is of course the foundation, that makes it all happen.

God Bless your happily married life. Thanks for sharing this beautiful poem!

Wonderful poem.

Nikki Khan (author) from London on April 11, 2018:

Thanks Jo for stopping by and for leaving such an amazing comment, this sonnet is my first try and to write it in rhythm was bit difficult and I’ve tried my best to write it according to Shakespearean Sonnet.

Jo Miller from Tennessee on April 10, 2018:

Thanks, Nikki, for sharing this lovely sonnet with us. Well done.

Nikki Khan (author) from London on April 07, 2018:

Thanks William for your precious visit, it always makes me smile.Thanks for your admiration, was trying something different from story, not an expert one but did well somehow.

And congratulations on your 38th number of happy marriage year, it’s truly appreciating to see you getting along for such a long time.

Bless you!

William Kovacic from Pleasant Gap, PA on April 07, 2018:

Nicely done, Nikki. It's a nice change of pace for you! Thank you for sharing this, I'm working on year number 38. All is good!

Thanks Chris for your visit, I appreciate your comment.

Thanks God You’ve learned not to bang the dishes as women love their cutlery more than anything.And another one is always listen to them and never ask questions as women don’t like to give answers.

Just kidding Chris, I think main rule is love only which can conquer anything and anyone.

Nikki Khan (author) from London on April 06, 2018:

Thanks Louise for your visit dear, welcome on my profile!

Love is definitely important in a blessful wedding as it plays a vital role to keep hearts closer and together.

Thanks for admiring my poetry, it’s such an honour for me.

Bless you!

Nikki Khan (author) from London on April 06, 2018:

Thanks Sean Brother for coming along and for such a wonderful comment.I always admire your comments.

Patience and sacrifice both are very necessary to maintain a blissful happy marriage.And of course, love is the tool to get through this beautiful phase smoothly and joyfully.

Money comes after which is another important factor to get this journey going without ups and downs.

I’m so happy for your such a long blessed marriage, may it last forever like this.

Thanks for your prayers for my wedding, Bless you Brother!

Chris Mills from Traverse City, MI on April 05, 2018:

Every thought of your sonnet is founded on truth..."don't ever dare to bang the dishes with a huge crack." I learned that one a couple of times. Thanks for the beautiful reminders of a happy marriage.

Louise Powles from Norfolk, England on April 05, 2018:

That's a lovely sonnet, Nikki. Love is certainly a very important part in any marriage. Thankyou for sharing, the words are beautiful.

Ioannis Arvanitis from Greece, Almyros on April 05, 2018:

Yes my dear Sister, Marriage, like life, is an Art. The most essential "ingredient" is Love but the patience is significant too! A happy marriage for 34 marvellous years and four sons, have taught me that! I believe that my beloved wife is the most important blessing of my life.

Such a beautiful Sonet! Thank you for sharing.

I wish you many many years of happy marriage.

God bless your family.


Nikki Khan (author) from London on April 05, 2018:

Ha ha, thanks Flourish for getting along this fun!

You must remind Mr FlourishAnyway that how lucky he is to have you in his life as a wife.

As husbands tend to forget alot and it’s wives’ responsibility to remind them again and again that how blessed is their life with them :)

Bless you, your hubby and kids dear!

Nikki Khan (author) from London on April 05, 2018:

Thanks Mike for your valuable visit, it’s an honour for me to get comment from a great author like you’re.

Ha ha, coming to my sonnet, husband should have plenty to spend on his wife to keep her happy :)

A secret to a happy marriage, and husband should listen to his wife quietly, that’s another golden secret to maintain happiness in your married life.Lol.

FlourishAnyway from USA on April 04, 2018:

I loved this. I just dropped nearly $2000 on some furniture pieces I wanted today. (I rarely do that.) I shall read this to Mr. FlourishAnyway and remind him how lucky he is to be a happily married man.

mckbirdbks from Emerald Wells, Just off the crossroads,Texas on April 04, 2018:

Hello Nikki Khan - Off to marriage there is a mad dash, as long as the husband has plenty of cash. Your humor here, is superb.

Nikki Khan (author) from London on April 04, 2018:

Thanks Linda for getting along!

Thanks for your appreciation and I’m glad you had fun reading it.

Happy marriage is such a blessed thing that nothing can compare it.This poem is for all those who are blessfully married for many years.

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on April 03, 2018:

Nikki Khan (author) from London on April 03, 2018:

Thanks Manatita ji for stopping by!

Thankfully and blessfully married with the grace of God.

Your admiration matters alot for me.A happy marriage has many tricks to get it work successfully.

Some work for some and others for others, you’re right in this as all humans are different from one another.

Bless you and your family!

manatita44 from london on April 03, 2018:

Very interesting poem. Since the essence of it seems to be that you are happily married, then you have my admiration.

Witty in parts and I have seen some being blessed by the route you seem to take. We are all different, I suppose. Have a great day!

Nikki Khan (author) from London on April 03, 2018:

Harish Mamgain from New Delhi , India on April 03, 2018:

Nikki , this sonnet is perfect for people like us, rowed our boat for 30 years till now and still going great. You are right , wife has necessarily to be pampered for a smooth journey. A lovely sonnet indeed.

Thanks Eric for your wonderful comment and huge appreciation!

Marriage is the most amazing thing on earth which gives you much more than it takes.

To me, It’s like a journey full of flowers. Especially kids help a lot to make it more beautiful and love gets more and more stronger with the time.

Bless you and your family Eric!

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on April 03, 2018:

This is wonderful. I often stop and reflect how much of me I have lost in my wonderful marriage. And then in .002 seconds I even love more deeply. A happy marriage is just a glimpse of heaven. Longevity makes it so much better. Wow you just made me appreciate it more. Well done, thanks.

Nikki Khan (author) from London on April 03, 2018:

Ha ha, you can imagine you’ve written it Bill as it’s a tribute to all the happy married couples like you and your wife are.

This is the case with our marriage as well, infact my all friends call my hubby an atm card for me ;)

But I had to work hard on us to get this card working, and of course my hubby did a lot of struggle too as I’m not very easy woman.Lol.

Thanks for coming and enjoying my poem Bill, bless you and your wife always.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on April 03, 2018:

Beautiful! You captured our marriage perfectly. I wish I had written this. lol

Many blessings and continued love to you!

Nikki Khan (author) from London on April 03, 2018:

Thanks Marry for coming along dear!

I really appreciate your support and I’m smiling too to know that it made you smile.

Happy Marriage isn’t an easy task to obtain, lots of patience and sacrifice is necessary to keep it working well.

Nikki Khan (author) from London on April 03, 2018:

Thanks John for your visit and encouragement, really in need of that.

Writing a sonnet is my first try to use writing in rhymes, and I found it much fun to combine all of them.

I’m humbled to accept your assurance that this was worth it.

Mary Norton from Ontario, Canada on April 03, 2018:
