3-Legged Race--By Cindy Evans--United States

3-Legged Race

Some say love is flowers
and romance, a perfect place;
I feel instead love is more
like a three-legged race.

Your right leg and their left,
bonded together, a connection,
keeping in step together,
you head in the same direction.

If one falls, the other
is there to give a lift;
having someone alongside of you
truly is a gift.

When both are doing well,
they enjoy the ride -
together they share the victory
and win it side by side.

Unity and staying close
is the secret, know the wise;
shoulder to shoulder, racing ahead,
they'll surely claim the prize!

  1. Hello, Cindy! This is a very cool way in defining a bond shared with another. It also defines life and its ups and downs and how we should flow the rhythms of life naturally. Of course, it is easier said than done given that we are all full of idio's and fails that plague us, but we are also innovative and creative and to overcome is pure success! Great poem! Sheri /

  2. Hi Cindy,
    You have described the benefits of true love so well in your poem. Those who leave you behind when the going gets tough will never know this kind of love. Love the way you call it a "three-legged" race. I never thought of it that way, but surely you are correct. Wishing you blessings as you continue to share your work with us. Carolyn

  4. Cindy, all I can say is Amen! Very well written and I so much enjoyed the analogy. Being in sync with one's sweetheart truly adds to the love, one has for the other. Thank you for sharing some wonderful thoughts in this perfectly lovely poem.
