What I Am Most Thankful For

25 Nov

A DUET:  WITH ACCOMPANIMENT BY A SLIGHTLY OUT OF TUNE PIANO.

 

YOU MAKE THE BED.

I PUT THE DISHES IN THE SINK.

YOU CALL THE PLUMBER

WHEN THE SHOWER RUNS COLD.

 

IT’S ALL PART OF THE DEAL

THE UPS AND THE DOWNS.

PHONE CALLS AND BILLS

AND LETTING THE CAT OUT.

 

I SLEEP NEXT TO YOU.

YOU SLEEP NEXT TO ME.

OUR LIFE IS AS SWEET

AS HONEY TO A BEE.

 

I OFFER TO MAKE LUNCH

BUT YOU’VE ALREADY ENJOYED

A SALAD FROM TRADER JOE’S.

IT WAS ABOUT TO EXPIRE.

 

WE GO FOR ANNUAL CHECK-UPS

AND EVERYTHING’S STILL CLICKING.

LIKE THE TIVO CONTROL

IF WE’VE REPLACED THE BATTERY.

 

REPEAT CHORUS

 

SOME DAYS ARE FOGGY

SOME CLEAR AS A BELL.

BUT SELDOM A DULL MOMENT

AND YOU ARE NEVER WRONG.

 

WHO WOULDA THUNK IT?

WELL, EVERYONE BUT ME.

DECADES FLY BY LIKE LEAVES

IN A TECHNICOLOR MOVIE.

 

I SLEEP NEXT TO YOU.

YOU SLEEP NEXT TO ME.

OUR LIFE IS AS SWEET

AS HONEY TO A BEE.

    You are both truly blessed. There are happy marriages, but few are lucky enough to find their “soulmate”– you & Cheri did. Add three wonderful, brilliant children to the mix–it doesn’t get better than that. They say the best thing you can do for your children is to
    Have a happy marriage. Blessings to you both. Can’t wait to see what you do in the next 30 years! LOL, Sioux & John( your best man).
